Top Ten Rocky Mountain Adventures


So you've hiked your trails and climbed your peaks, paddled your rivers and ridden your horses. What next? You'll camp, of course—and the Rockies are a no-brainer for overnights. Glacier National Park in Montana beckons with promises of solitude and more than 730 miles of trail. The southwestern part of Colorado luxuriates in an abundance of wilderness and national parks—North Crestone, Ridgway, Silver Jack, and Transfer Park give the camper a dose of classic Rocky Mountain nightlife, natural-style. And to soothe those throbbing muscles after a hard day of hiking, biking, riding, paddling, or fishing, there's no beating the Colorado hot springs. So kick back, relax, and enjoy the view.
