Landing in Denver, CO - Rocky Mtn, Grand Teton & Yellowstone NP loop

Jump to last reply

Hello all :) We are taking a 10 day trip out to Colorado & Wyoming (-2 days for flying in/out), at the end of August/beginning of Sept. The current plan is:

Day 1
Land in Denver, drive up to Estes Park, stay somewhere inexpensive
Perhaps a quick drive through Rocky Mountain NP

Day 2
Spend the day in RMNP

Day 3
Finish up RMNP (if need be), then hit the road up to Jackson, WY
Hoping to stay at a nice B&B

Day 4 - 5
Explore Grand Tetons NP

Day 6
Finish up Tetons, drive up through Yellowstone to West Yellowstone, MT (seems to be the best place to stay, b/c all of the Park hotel/lodges are booked)

Day 7 - 8
Explore Yellowstone (need to see the Grand Canyon of YS!)

Day 9
Drive back down to Denver (it's the only airport we can get a nonstop out of, AND it seems to be MUCH cheaper to return the rental car where you pick it up)

Day 10
Fly home (boo!)

Questions:
Our Colorado visitor guide says that the #1 gorgeous place to see is the Maroon Bells, near Aspen. Is this worth adding? So, we'd land in Denver, drive out to Aspen, then on Day 2, drive up to RMNP after seeing MB. Worth it??

We're torn between the last week in Aug vs first week in Sept (either way, Labor Day will be part of the trip) - is 1 any better than the other? I would think Sept, but there seems to be less rooms avail...

I've been sifting through a lot of forum posts here, and I also rely on tripadvisor for their 'best of' lists; but ANY advice/tips/must sees you might have are appreciated! Thank you!
