ESTES PARK, Colo. (AP) – A 61-year-old man from Austin, Texas, died Saturday while hiking near Estes Park.

The trail is on a popular route that tops out at 11,400 feet and offers stunning views of nearby Longs Peak in Rocky Mountain National Park.

Bystanders performed CPR and tried to resuscitate the man, but they were not successful.

The man has not been identified.
