Colorado’s Rocky Mountain National Park finished off 2016 as the nation’s fourth most popular national park with more than 4.5 million visitors.

The Reporter-Herald reports that the U.S. Department of the Interior issued a news release saying the county’s national parks saw a record number of visitors last year. Visitation topped 330 million in 2016, which marked the National Park Service’s 100th anniversary.

Rocky Mountain National Park ranked fourth among the nation’s parks for visitation, behind Yosemite National Park and ahead of Zion National Park. First place went to Great Smoky Mountains National Park, which saw 11.3 million visitors.
