We will be travelling by hire car from Denver via Nederland to Estes Park in late June. We won't be leaving Denver till early afternoon due to a morning tour of Red Rock Amphitheater. My question is should we drive the Trail Ridge road in the late afternoon or leave it to the following morning? We have no problem getting up early. Should we also try and fit in Bear Lake trailhead? We only have 1 night in Estes Park, heading to Hot Springs the next day.
