WHAT TO EXPECT:
Rocky Mountain National Park boasts the very best of what Colorado and the Rocky Mountains has to offer: unbelievably scenic mountains, awesome hiking and superb wildlife viewing. But perhaps the most memorable aspect of the Park is that it was created with the driving visitor in mind.
Nowhere else in the country can you drive a scenic route that brings you above the treeline and into the alpine tundra for 11 miles, peaking at altitudes over 12,000 feet.
Or you may want to follow the historic route that the earliest visitors drove in their Stanley Steamer or Model T’s on the Old Fall River Road. There are many scenic viewpoints including Rainbow Curve Outlook and Mushroom Rocks Overlook along the driving route, and easy, accessible trails at Sprague and Bear Lakes.
Hear all about the “Father of Rocky Mountain National Park” and the other influential characters who fought and invested heavily to preserve this area.
But many visitors are drawn by the excellent wildlife watching opportunities. Especially during the Fall rut when male bull elk and moose are fending off rivals, vocally and physically. We’ll point out the best locations to keep watch and increase your chances.
This is a truly unique experience that has thrilled drivers and passengers since the 1920s.
The tour officially starts and ends close to each entrance of the Park; Beaver Meadows and Fall River from Estes Park, and Grand Lake from the West. Or you can join and pick up the commentary anywhere along the route. Narration will automatically trigger at the next commentary point.

Ratings and Reviews
Worth every cent
I’ve had an iPhone since their release and this is the first review I’ve feeler compelled to write. A friend recommended the app and I was a bit doubtful at first due to the number of free apps out there. Wow, was this app amazing. It was like having a personal tour guide! Not only did it run off of GPS when there was no reception, gave us directions before turns with options on which way went where, but also had all sorts of insightful information along the trip. To top it off it was a very calming voice while driving around precarious roads, and the sense of humor was appreciated. Well done and looking forward to more adventures with Gypse
Our new friend!
We started using Gypsy Guide out in Yosemite and now will not go anywhere without it. The information is spot on VALUABLE to let you know everything you need while driving the National Parks. The information about the history of the park is so fascinating!
The only thing I would like and it may be out there is information BEFORE you plan your trip like times to enter and leave the park due to crowds. What is the best things to see and do while in the park. All that information is in Gypsy, just it plays while you are already in the park or going in to the park so it is kind of too late.
THIS APP IS A MUST TO NAVIGATE THE NATIONAL PARKS!

Thanks Himandherr. Appreciate your feedback. Looking at best ways we can add more trip planning information for those who like to read, while keeping it simple for those that just want to drive and go! So many great stories about the history, characters & animals to share. Keep exploring. #gypsyguide
Worth the money!
My husband and I visited RMNP for the first time last week. It was rather frustrating to lose all cell service upon entering the park and we felt “lost”. We decided to purchase this app before we drove the Alpine Ridge Trail hoping it might give us some guidance. We were wowed! It was as if we had a tour guide with us throughout the drive. I loved all the information it provided about RMNP, the side stops and the animals that we might see during the drive. This app is well worth the money.
