Owner description: An area within the park where visitors can see many elk, especially in late October.
Reviewed 6 February 2018

Horseshoe Park is a valley in Rocky Mountain NP and is famous for wildlife viewing. Bighorn sheep visits Sheep Lakes in late spring and early summer, and elk is frequently seen in the area. Little Horseshoe Park Overlook has a great view of the valley.

My husband and I visited the area around 7pm in late August. Although we didn't see any sheep (as it wasn't the right time of year), we were lucky enough to see wild turkey, elk, and black bear while driving on Fall River Road. View from the overlook was wonderful.

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.
