Lumpy Ridge, lying in the northeastern sector of Rocky Mountain National Park and north of Estes Park, offers a sunny climbing playground with over thirty-five named crags on its 3-mile-long south-facing ridge. Its scattered lumps of granite form the park’s most popular climbing area, providing a huge variety of great climbs on perfect stone. Most routes are climbed in a traditional style, requiring the placement and removal of gear. A few bolted climbs arefound, but are the exception.

Day & Overnight Hikes: Rocky Mountain National Park

Day & Overnight Hikes: Rocky Mountain National Park

Gem Lake, if you’ll pardon the pun, is a jewel. Located on the eastern edge of Rocky Mountain National Park, this trailhead is one of the closest to the town of Estes Park. To begin this hike, leave your car and walk to the trailhead and signs that mark the beginning of the Gem Lake Trail.

Gem Lake’s lower elevation in relation to the rest of Rocky Mountain National Park, along with the hike’s southern exposure, make this a great year-round hike. Estes Park is home to retirees, families, and other outdoors enthusiasts, so both the very old and very young frequent this trail.
