Rocky Mountain National Park is a national park founded on January 26, 1915. There are 355-miles of trails that range from flat lakeside strolls to steep mountain peak climbs. The park includes the Continental Divide and sits in the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains. The Front Range peaks elevations are the highest elevations, from Grey’s Peak at 14,278 ft to Twin Sisters Peak at 11,007 ft.

There are several different types of animals that can be found in the park, including mammals, birds, fish, amphibians and reptiles, butterflies, insects, spiders, centipedes and millipedes, threatened and endangered species. One mammal little known to us is the Pika. This small animal can die in temperatures excessive of 70 degrees F so they have to climb in order to escape the heat. These mammals help our scientists research global warming.

There are also educational programs, resources and a portal for those interested in science and research in the park. The park has been designated as a United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural (UNESCO) international biosphere reserve. There were 3,443,501 visitors to the park in 2014. Since 1904, there have been 171,403,108 visitors to the park. The park was ranked 23rd in recreational visitors in 2014.[
