About this spot
Moraine Park is a large meadow long ago carved by a glacier. Its name comes from the large mound of rocks left in the middle and the long hills on either side of the meadow created as the glacier receded. They are called “moraines”. On the back end of this beautiful meadow are jagged peaks which remain covered in snow through mid-June and generally hold onto at least a little snow all year long. Right in the middle of the meadow is the Big Thompson River which gently meanders back and forth on its eastward journey. This wonderful meadow is also where you will find large herds of elk as well as coyote, mule deer and a variety of other wildlife.
