Grand Lake, CO
Of the 297 bridges that carry hikers over streams in Rocky Mountain National Park, the bridge at the beginning of the Coyote Valley Trail must be the most elaborate, a humbler version of the magnificent Carriage Path bridges in Acadia National Park. This structure across the Colorado River leads to a wheelchair-accessible path along the level floodplain. Many benches and signs help visitors to appreciate and understand the riverside environment on the west side of Rocky Mountain National Park. Broad loops, detours, and cul-de-sacs provide variety in hiking to the trail’s end and back. Highlights: Colorado River, views of Never Summer Range, wildlife.
