In the cold of winter, insects can’t survive. Therefore, there are no annoying mosquitoes, spiders, or wood ticks are around to bother you and put a damper on your hike.

No leaves

As beautiful as the green leaves are in Rocky Mountain National Park, they do impede your view. With no leaves on the trees, you can see exactly how far and wide this national treasure stretches.

Picturesque views

There are few things more majestic than a snow-peaked mountain. In Estes Park, you are in the perfect place to see the breathtaking snow peaks of Colorado.

Fewer people

Generally, very few people think to hike during the winter. During the summer in Rocky Mountain National Park, you cannot walk five feet without running into another person. However, in the bleak mid-winter, the trails are much less populated. This makes it much easier to relax and enjoy the park without worrying about foot traffic.
