You can never see and do everything on a vacation. But, you certainly can hit the best spots and experience the "can't miss" destinations on your vacation. If you are only in town for a few days, these are our favorite hikes to recommend. The scenery is spectacular! Though there are dozens of other exceptional destinations, these are relatively "moderate" when it comes to difficulty of hikes. Keep in mind, hiking at 10,000 feet is a bit different than sea level. The terrain in RMNP is steep, rocky, and grand. These hikes do not require technical equipment and they are not strenuous like other hikes in the Park. This is our "best of the best" list for the average visitor and many of these hikes are kid-friendly.
