Rocky Mountain National Park Wilderness

General Location Maps Contacts Area Management Wilderness Laws Images


Seventy miles northwest of Denver, spanning Grand and Larimer counties, the park is cherished by the residents of Grand, Larimer, Boulder and Denver counties, and appreciated by visitors from around the world. The towns of Grand Lake and Estes Park serve as "gateways" to the park, and the tourism that the park's wildlife and wilderness attract is a major source of economic stability for local businesses. Adjacent to Indian Peaks Wilderness and Comanche Peaks Wilderness to the south and to Never Summer Wilderness to the west, the park is also surrounded by Routt, Roosevelt and Arapaho national forests.
