Roam the park with an award-winning writer to discover traces of park history that lie hidden beneath the surface and off the beaten path. See billion-year-old rocks, and examine a game drive wall used by prehistoric hunters. Tour the Apache Fort site of an early Indian battle, and visit the 1915 RMNP dedication ceremony site. Discover the “phantom” Big Thompson River park entrance and old entrance road, and explore early ranches, the last remnant of a guest lodge and the site of the park’s ski area. Witness the changes floods in two different centuries have left on the park, and wander inside an elk exclosure to see 21st century wildlife management in action.
