Rocky Mountain National Park turns 100 in 2015. History Colorado is celebrating the people and the places of one of our most cherished spots in the We❤ Rocky Mountain National Park exhibit. The exhibit is part of a year-long, state-wide celebration of Rocky Mountain National Park’s centennial.
Today the mountains of Colorado are continuously flooded with people flocking to enjoy the bountiful trails. But imagine what it was like for the mountaineers at the turn of the century. Bulky wool clothing, heavy equipment and blisters all were part of the journey. These mountaineers were true adventurers who created what became the Colorado Mountain Club (CMC).
What better way to celebrate National Great Outdoors Month than to explore some of Rocky Mountain National Park’s National Register-listed trails? Many of the Park’s buildings, resources, and trails are historic.
