Every season brings its unique set of treasures, but fall is truly magical. Here are the highlights of what you'll find as the summer draws to an end in our breathtaking valley.
KEEP TABS ON TAILS
Hear the call of bull elk as they bugle their way to finding a mate on a guided elk expedition. Or watch the drama unfold over a picnic on the tailgate of your car. The best spots in Rocky Mountain National Park to catch the action are Horseshoe
Park, Moraine Park and Upper Beaver Meadows. You can even track them online at #EstesElkWatch
As our native brown, rainbow and greenback trout prepare for a long (and very cold) underwater inter, they like to chow down. Take advantage of their unlimited hunger this fall with the help of a fishing guide who will show you how-and where-to land your best catch.
September is ablaze with bursts of orange and gold as leaves peak in color and vibrancy. For breathtaking views, drive Trail Ridge Road, or travel south on Highway 7 to Mount Meeker, Longs Peak, Twin Sisters, and gorgeous Lily Lake. Visit our website for the best viewing spots or ask a local to point you in the right direction.
Whether climbing is your passion, or you're just starting out, Lumpy Ridge is the place to go-with a guide or a climbing partner to challenge you on a variety of routes and difficulties.
ZZZZS IN THE TREES
From charming cabins to breathtaking inns and (some say haunted) hotels-lodging abounds with a fantastic view of the fall foliage. Check our website for our lodging lineup to select the best room for you.
