Rocky Mountain National Park

The green grass and blue skies that envelop expansive mountains make for a classic horseback riding experience that visitors have enjoyed since Rocky Mountain National Park's creation in 1915. Elevations as high as 9,400 feet above sea level bring riders more than 275 miles worth of trails for commercial and private horseback riding.
