NATIONAL PARK

FAQS ABOUT THE
NATIONAL PARK

WILDLIFE WATCHING
Winter is an especially good time
for spying elk, mule deer and other
critters. Their colorful hides stand
out against the snowscape, or
their tracks give them away. Look
for elk and deer in open meadows,
which is also where they gather in
autumn. Visit in September and
October to view-and hear-their
mating antics. The bulls' bugles
shatter the quiet, and their battles,
during which they spar and clash
their antlers to maintain their
harem, delight onlookers.

WHERE CAN I SEE WILDLIFE
IN THE NATIONAL PARK?
Honestly, all over. More than
60 mammalian and 270 bird
species inhabit the park. Elk,
popular with visitors, often
forage in meadows and near
forest edges during summer.
HOW CAN I STAY SAFE WHILE
IN THE NATIONAL PARK?
Be prepared: Weather can
change quickly. Carry plenty
of water and snacks. Wear
sunscreen. Pack a flashlight,
extra clothing, matches and a
first aid kit. Ideally, travel with
a buddy and let someone
know where you're going and
when you expect to be back.
Cell phones can be helpful,
but many trails and mountain
roads may be out of range.
If you need assistance, keep

dialing or texting 911 from
different spots, especially high
points. Always check the
weather and know your route
well before heading out. Pick
a trail or activity that is well
matched to your abilities-
rangers or outfitters can offer
recommendations and expertise.
CAN I HIKE IN THE NATIONAL
PARK WITH MY DOG? No.
Pets are not permitted on
any trails within the national
park, but leashed dogs are
allowed inside its parking lots,
campgrounds, picnic areas
and along roadside pullouts.
Be respectful (and legal),
and clean up after your pet.
Dog-friendly trails are available around Estes Park and in
Roosevelt National Forest.
WHAT IS THE CONTINENTAL
DIVIDE? North America's
highest points, the Continental Divide separates waters
flowing west to the Pacific

Ocean from those flowing
east to the Gulf of Mexico and
the Atlantic Ocean.
ARE DRONES ALLOWED IN
THE NATIONAL PARK? No,
Rocky Mountain National Park
is a designated no-fly zone.
