Experience a taste of the tropics high in the Rockies! As its namesake suggests, Sandbeach Lake boasts a stretch of white sand wrapping around a stunning alpine lake, making it a perfect summer destination. The lake sits in the shadow of Long’s Peak surrounded by lush evergreen forests and National Parkland. This area also holds historic significance, as it was where the famous geologist John Wesley Powell camped on his way to the first successful ascent of Long’s Peak in 1868. At only 4.2 miles from the trailhead to the lake, this is a great trip for beginners and families. Click here for more information!
East Inlet Fishing
With three different lakes and a connecting stream teeming with trout, this trek is a fly fisherman’s paradise. Because of its location on the less-visited western side of Rocky Mountain National Park, you’re likely to have your pick of fishing spots with little to no competition on this trip. This trail winds past some great small stream fishing in beautiful meadows and dense forests, and up to one of the largest fishable lakes in the Park, Lake Verna. Whether you prefer casting into a stream or an alpine lake, this trip is perfect for anglers of any skill level.Click here for more information!
East Inlet Hiking
Located on the less crowded western side of Rocky Mountain National Park, this trip will take you to parts of the park few get to see. The hike winds through stunning wildflower-speckled alpine meadows, evergreen forests, and snow-capped peaks. Because this area is less trafficked than other parts of the Park, it is teeming with a variety of wildlife including moose, elk, and black bears. This trail also boasts three stunning alpine lakes, Lone Pine Lake, Lake Verna, and Spirit Lake. For those feeling a little more adventurous, this area is also a great location for an off-trail peak ascent. Click here for more information!
A true gem of Rocky Mountain National Park, Wild Basin trailhead offers you a great experience. Along this path, you will be able to see winding streams, crystal lakes (Ouzel Lake and Thunder Lake), remote peaks, stunning wildflowers, and three waterfalls within three miles (Copeland Falls, Calypso Cascades, and Ouzel Falls). This trail offers a more private experience at Rocky Mountain National Park as it is remote and less trafficked, which allows for more wildlife spottings!
