There is no denying that the Rockies are beautiful at any time of year, but we believe they are especially magical during the fall. The heat of summer has left us, the cooler weather feels great and lets you know that winter is not far behind. If you are planning to take a family vacation to the Rocky Mountains in the fall, you are sure to agree with us!
As with any trip, it is important that you pack the right clothes for the right vacation. Being too warm or too cold can quickly turn into a trip ruiner, and if you are not from a mountainous area, knowing what to pack can be a tricky thing. Fortunately, that is where our helpful guide comes in!
The mountains are known for their varying conditions during the autumn season, but with a bit of preparation, you can be certain you are ready for anything.
What to Pack for a Trip to the Rocky Mountain National Park
A comfortable pair of boots. If you are going to be doing some hiking (or even a lot of walking around town), having a comfortable pair of boots is a must. Hiking boots and a good pair of socks will keep your feet dry and comfortable all day long.
A lightweight jacket. With weather patterns varying based on the mountain winds, pop-up showers are quite common. Having a lightweight raincoat with you can be extremely helpful for these sudden sprinkles. A breathable one will keep you comfortable regardless of the temperature and should pack down small enough that bringing it along is not an inconvenience.
Layers to fend off a chill. In the fall season, mornings and evenings can turn quite chilly in the mountains, so layers are a must. Light fleece layers over a cotton T-shirt can keep your core warm and ensure you are cozy until the sun warms things up again.
