COLORADO NATIONAL PARKS
We’re lucky enough to live in close proximity to four different National Parks here in Colorado; Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve, Rocky Mountain National Park, Mesa Verde National Park, and Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park. While they’re all located in different parts of the state, they’re all equally worth the trip as they vary in terrain, scenery, history, and culture.
Colorado Culture Approved: We highly recommend visiting and recreating in all 4, but Rocky Mountain National Park is an adventure lover's dream come true. With year round ease of accessibility from Denver and the Front Range and summer accessibility from Grand Lake there's a reason it's the third most visited park in the United States. If you're looking for a quick trip with amazing camping and hiking to some of the most gorgeous places you've ever seen then look no further.
Friendly Travel Tip: We can't stress this enough, but please LEAVE NO TRACE. Respect the rangers and posted signs wherever you are. NEVER FEED THE WILDLIFE. These are some of the most sacred and beautiful lands in our country. It is our job to protect and preserve them. Without us these places won't last forever. Please do your part.
Natural Landmarks: Here’s where you can virtually choose your own adventure. We’ve got 54 14er’s (mountain peaks topping out at over 14,000 feet), natural rock formations such as the Garden of the Gods and Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre, as well as sprawling national parks like the Great Sand Dunes. All equally impressive, all equally located right here in our backyard.
