You don’t need to be a White Walker in order to hike in the winter. Better yet, you probably don’t need to concern yourself about encountering a White Walker while hiking the Rockies. That being said, here’s a list of the best winter hikes in the Rocky Mountain National Park. The order in which the list is presented does not necessarily reflect how each hike compares to the others. As you might know, the selection of these hikes is based on subjective impressions and you are always free to challenge them in the comments section.
For many, good weather for outdoor exploration means summer temperatures and a clear sky. Not surprisingly, people are more likely to visit national parks during the summer. This actually makes sense in several ways. For instance, many hiking trails are closed during winter and access to must-see remote locations tends to be difficult, if at all possible. That being said, those who are in the mood for visiting Yellowstone National Park ASAP should not be frustrated in the winter but excited to know Yellowstone is open for tourists all year long.
Lake Louis is one of the most popular attractions in Banff National Park (Alberta, Canada). Located at only 3.1 miles (5 km) from the Trans-Canada Highway and about 124 miles (200 km) from Calgary International Airport, this glacial lake is opened and accessible for visitors in all seasons. While the area is particularly popular in the winter for its ski resorts (Sunshine Village, Lake Louis Ski Resort, and Norquai), non-skiers are typically not bored at all when visiting Lake Louis during the snow season.
If you are looking for train rides in Colorado, you must consider the Durango and Silverton narrow gauge railroad train. In case you wonder, this is not strictly a discussion about two towns and a train but rather a discussion about the relevance of them in the life of those who visit the Rocky Mountains in Colorado. Located in the south of the state at the base of the mountains, Durango offers some vibes from the old Wild West.
Trail Ridge Road is an 11 miles-long (17.7 km) high highway that covers an area of 48 miles (77.2 km) between Estes Park and Grand Lake. This is the one and only road that crosses Rocky Mountain National Park. Believe it or not, many visitors have come to regard Trail Ridge Road as one of the best highways in the known world. Whether it is for its wildlife or alpine views, driving across this highway is arguably a must for anyone visiting Rocky Mountain National Park.
From time to time, we may feel the need to escape from our technologized life and reconnect with nature (so to speak). Trekking addicts are obviously a type of people that enjoy spending a lot of time outside the pleasures of contemporary life, even if they also love the global village. Yellowstone National Park is a top location for those who want to distance themselves from cities, towns, and villages. However, the degree of wilderness you will experience in Yellowstone varies significantly depending on the exact location. Today is the day we talk about one of the most remote places in Yellowstone National Park-Thorofare.
