Considered as one of the most accomplished site to spot exotic wild animals in their natural habitat, Rocky Mountain National Park is home to a huge population of elks, bighorn sheep, mule deer, a rather small population of moose, and several coyotes. The Coyote Valley Trail along the Colorado River in Kawuneeche Valley is the favorite among tourists and is a perfect tour to spot several Coyotes.
