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

Great place to get a view of what was left behind from the ice age glacial action. The moraine view from the Horseshoe Lookout is fantastic. Make certain that you stop. Plan at least 30 minutes to take in the scenery.

Some of the favorites pictures I took in the park are from viewpoints looking down on Horseshoe Park (a park is an Alpine Meadow tucked away in the mountains). It was fun and interesting to see the park from above and then drive down to see it at ground level.

Horseshoe park is one of the best places to see mule deer. Every day we drove into the park there were animals. We saw elk, mule deer, coyote, geese, duck and a moose there.

I've never seen a view like it. I was there in May, so the sun was out and spring was in full swing, but there was still snow all over the ground, of which I'd never experienced it so deep!

The mountains were gorgeous, although many trails still closed off for fear of snow drift. A MUST DO!

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.
