Fodor's Review

At 8,250 feet above sea level, the Betty Ford Alpine Gardens are the highest public botanical gardens in North America. This oasis of columbines, alpine plants, colorful perennials, and wild roses offers stunning views of the Rocky Mountains from meandering pathways that pass beside streams and waterfalls. The gardens are free to the public and open year-round; peak flower season is June through August. Guided tours are available.
