From valley strolls to summit attempts, the Mountain Campus is the starting point for numerous outstanding hikes that lead to the majestic peaks of Rocky Mountain National Park. Walks around the valley provide opportunities to see and hear wildlife and can be completed in as little as 30 minutes. Longer day hikes to Cirque Meadow and Surprise Pond follow well-established trails and offer majestic mountain views.
