If you are moving west to east through the park, start here. You can get helpful information. You do not purchase your entry pass here, just get very helpful information.

We were on the west (Grand Lake) side of the Rocky Mountain National park, so we stopped to get information on hiking. The staff was very helpful and welcoming.

While on a tour of the Rocky Mountain National Park we stopped by the road in the Kawuneeche Valley by Grand Lake. Amazing scenic view that will make you appreciate the treasures to be found here in the United States.
