Are you looking for the perfect gift for your loved ones who enjoy visiting Rocky Mountain National Park? Look no further! This is a great way to both give and receive, as the person getting the pass will be able to enjoy the beauty of the park for an entire year, and the park is able to continue to both maintain its current infrastructure and also improve with many new projects.
Now is the time to purchase an annual RMNP pass for yourself or your loved ones, as the price will be increasing from $50 to $60 on Janaury 1, 2017. You can purchase your pass either online (until December 30, 2016) or directly at a park entrance.

Rocky Mountain National Park is surrounded by several national forests - of which the two main ones are Roosevelt National Forest (to the north and east sides of the park) and Arapaho National Forest (on the west and south sides of the park).
In the national forests, unlike in RMNP, you are allowed to hunt, as well as take your dog on walks, go ATVing or motorcycling, and in the winter, go snowmobiling. Snowmobiling is only allowed on the groomed trails in Arapaho National Forest, many of which can be found near the Grand Lake area to the west side of RMNP. For more specific information and maps, check out the US Forest Service site.
