Summer is a great time to experience all of the wonders of Rocky Mountain National Park, from the forest floor and open meadows of the montane life zone, climbing in elevation to the alpine lakes and up to the top of the Continental Divide and the Alpine Tundra. The elevation in Rocky spans from below 8,000 feet to over 14,000 feet above sea level. With many diverse ecosystems found in the park, there is something for everyone to discover.
