Rocky Mountain National Park is located in the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains, in the north-central region of the state of Colorado. The park is split by the Continental Divide, which gives the eastern and western portions of the park a different character. The east side of the park tends to be drier, with heavily glaciated peaks and cirques. The west side of the park is wetter and more lush, with deep forests dominating. The park contains 72 named peaks higher than 12,000 feet, and over one fourth of the park resides above tree line. The highest point of the park is Longs Peak, which rises to 14,259 feet above sea level.
