At Kirk’s Mountain Adventure, we feel privileged to offer guided hiking trips in Estes Park. This is because Estes Park is the gateway to Rocky Mountain National Park, one of our country’s greatest treasures. For more than 100 years, Rocky Mountain National Park has brought joy and awe to millions of visitors. Here are the top three reasons you need to visit Rocky Mountain National Park for one of our guiding hiking trips:
The Mountains
If you love the picturesque beauty of the Rocky Mountains, Rocky Mountain National Park is a must-see. The park is home to Longs Peak, a world-renowned 14er, as well as more than 70 mountains above 12,000 feet. These gorgeous peaks are a majestic sight to see in every season.
The Wildlife
The opportunities to see wildlife at Rocky Mountain National Park are plentiful and fascinating. One of the highlights of the wildlife experience at the park is the herds of elk. Their mating season is in late summer and early autumn, and when you visit the park during this time, you can hear them bugling, their mating call. Other wildlife includes bighorn sheep, beavers, moose, black bears, more than 270 species of birds, and precocious chipmunks who won’t hesitate to approach you.
The Trails
Rocky Mountain National Park offers more than 355 miles of hiking trails that are perfect for a variety of experience levels. Whether you want to try the easier trails, such as the Bear Lake Loop, or are looking for more of a challenge, such as the uphill climb of Capitol Peak, Kirk’s Mountain Adventures can guide you on the trails to help you fully understand the beauty of Rocky Mountain National Park.
