We were so thrilled that the trail was re-opened the day we arrived in Estes Park. This was a bucket-list drive for me, and I was overjoyed that my wife and 5-month old son could enjoy it with me for my 30th birthday. Outrageously beautiful views, turns that raise your heart rate, and access to some of the best scenery... More

After hiking near Bear Lake we drove the road to the turn-around where it is closed in the winter. There was light snow falling so there was not much of a view. However, we could see some of the valley and mountains in the distance.

If you make it to Rocky Mountain National Park don't miss the opportunity to take a road trip on the Trail Ridge Road. Block off at least 4 hours or you won't appreciate it. We drove from Estes Park to Milner Pass at the Continental Divide and back and took at least 4 hours. We stopped at a number of... More

This is an amazing stretch of road with some of the most majestic views around. There are a couple of areas you can pull off and park to take pictures or take in the scenery. Unfortunately part of it was closed due to the season; but we expected this and will have to come back for the full experience. Even... More

Trail Ridge Road is the perfect place to get a feel for rugged mountainous terrain and to see natures beauty at it's finest in Rocky Mountain National Park. Portions of it can be accessed year round offering many vistas to view some of North America's most accessible mountains. During the summer season you can drive across the continental divide through... More

I could drive Trail Ridge Road on every trip to RMNP. I love the vast vistas and the feeling of being on the tops of the mountains. I enjoy the tundra experience and listening to the pikas chirping in the rocks. The approach via the Old Fall River Road is my favorite as it is not as crowded. It is... More

This was a great drive around the park. We were lucky enough that the weather was good and the whole road was open. We saw a lot of wildlife and the views are amazing! The traffic can start to back up if there are animals that people are slowing down to look at, but overall a great experience!

Nice scenic byway to drive through and take picture of long peak in your background. Roads are icy so in winters so getting a guided tour is better.
