Rocky Mountain National Park
Moraine Park Area
It's possible that the only time you'll spend in Moraine Park is while driving through the area, headed for somewhere else. Even if that's the case, you should stop for just a few minutes, to enjoy Moraine Park's meadows, surrounded by jagged mountain peaks.
Moraine Park is located along Bear Lake Road, about a mile inside the park, and just south of US 36. There's a visitor center here, that's open during the summer. You can also camp here -- Moraine Park offers one of Rocky Mountain National Park's five drive-in campgrounds. Reservations are required.
The Big Thompson River flows through Moraine Park, on its way into Estes Park. Follow the small side road that runs alongside the river for a mile or so, and you'll locate the Fern Lake Trailhead. A 7.7 mile (round trip) hike will take you past a couple of waterfalls, to Fern Lake.
Continue on Bear Lake Road for another 7 miles, until the road ends at the Bear Lake Trailhead.
