I am planning to visit RMNP mid June. I am aware of permits and the process. However, I have never been to the park. I was hoping to get some information on day hikes that are local favorites, good car camping sites, maybe a short 1 1/2 mile in hike to a backcountry site, and so forth. I’m taking twin 6 year olds that can carry a full pack about 3 miles round trip through moderate terrain. I will be entering via the Longmont side. Any suggestions are appreciated.
