Take a trip to the mountains of Grand Lake, Colorado. Resting on the Grand Lake itself, the town is next to the western entrance of the Rocky Mountain National Park. Way up high, find clear alpine water and amazing mountain views — with just a sprinkle of western charm. Be one with nature at one of the top hiking spots in the country.
The Grand Lake itself is Colorado’s largest and deepest natural lake. Go kayaking, canoeing, or paddle boarding at this electric spot. Watch sailing races from the yacht club, and frequent the marinas and boat docks. There’s also a small beach at Grand Lake where you can relax and enjoy the summer months. The Rocky Mountain National Park is the area’s pride and joy. Hike the Adams Falls trail, which is a short hike where waterfalls plummet down rocks. The Big Meadows trail has views of meadows and wildflowers, and is rated as a moderate hike. The Rocky Mountain Repertory Theatre is a beloved small town theatre with a surprisingly good reputation. Catch a show after a day of hiking!
Although the rest of the world seems far away once you’re in the expansive mountain areas, the rest of Colorado is literally at your feet. Longs Peak is under two hours away by car, and is one of the most prominent mountains in the Rocky Mountain National Park. With a glacier and many hiking trails, the Keyhole route is most popular — a rewarding trail for experienced hikers. See the aptly named Keyhole site! Peacock Pool and Chasm Lake are popular, and more manageable trails at Longs Peak. Two and a half hours away from Grand Lake will have you arriving at Boulder. Boulder is home to the University of Colorado, Boulder, and therefore has a college town vibe. In Boulder, you can visit the Eldorado Canyon for waterfall views, or the Flatirons just outside of Boulder with Chautauqua at its feet. Chautauqua is a great picnic spot, that’s close and much less strenuous than the traditional hikes.
Find yourself the perfect wooden alpine cabin, preferably with a lakeside view in Grand Lake. Settle into a cosy and relaxing rental with your family, right in the middle of nature. Tripping has a selection of rentals, homes, and hotels for you to explore. Get comfortable in the mountains!
Grand Lake doesn’t have too much in the way of public transportation, as it is high up away from the world. You’ll need a sturdy car to conquer the surrounding terrain, especially if you’re planning on doing lots of day trips. The Grand Lake Bus Service has shuttles to the Rocky Mountain National Park. Avalanche Car Rentals can help you out if you don’t have access to your own wheels.
