“A hot spot for elk sightings!”
Review of Horseshoe Park

Owner description: An area within the park where visitors can see many elk, especially in late October.
Reviewed 22 October 2016

By far, this is one of the hot spots for viewing elk in Rocky Mtn National Park. There is parking along the road as well as a parking lot. Some other areas don't have near the parking and any elk sighting creates traffic gridlock to rival Los Angeles.

The presence of horses with their droppings, dust and erosion of the trails detract to a great degree from the appeal of this meadow and its trails. Would not recommend Horseshoe Park.

This is an amazing drive in the RMNP area and it offers amazing view. There is an abundance of wildlife native to the mountains that often frequents the area here as well. Definitely worth a stop.

Nice drive with a few pull offs and has a lot of photo ops. Did see a lot of bull elk here grazing. We also saw Wyoming underground squirrels here as one of the rangers pointed out.

You can access Horseshoe Park from your vehicle. There are some great views with "pull-offs" so that you can safely get out of your car and take those very special vacation pictures of the valley and the Mummy Range in the distance.
