Trail Ridge is only part of the year. If you lucky to visit when it is, you definitely should make the drive. It takes you above Treeline to the Alpine Center and down to both sides of the park. The East side (Estes Park) is the most popular, while the West (Grand Lake) is quieter but still beautiful. The road... More

We traveled here and stayed at Glacier Basin Campground for 2 nights over 4th of July weekend. This campground is in a great location, we were near Bear Lake and were able to hike the trails down near our campground here to check out some neat lakes and waterfalls. We took trail ridge road which was only about 5 minutes... More

Started in bright sunny weather, had a wonderful picnic near the top at a quiet picnic table and were caught in a hail and snow storm later in the afternoon. A bit scarry, At some point traffic just stopped as... More

Trail Ridge Rd climbs through Rocky Mountain National Park from Grand Lake, CO entry into Estes Park! Spectacular scenery as you drive through. Go during the summer as it is closed off in many areas during the winter! Elevation increases as you drive through the tundra. Wildlife everywhere!!

We decided to visit Rocky Mountain National Park while we were here for a short vacation. Even though it is winter, the park has amazing views to take in on the portion of Trail Ridge Road. The park ranger at the Visitor Center was very helpful and full of information. Definitely worth a visit any time of the year!

Not to be missed. Beautiful in summer with patches of snow still melting. We saw marmots and bighorn sheep!

After reading all the reviews, this is the one must do activity! The views were incredible, stunning and awesome. I drove a Honda Odyssey minivan while my husband rode shotgun and it was a very easy to maneuver over this wide, well maintained gravel road. The Old Fall River Road is nine winding miles that go through all four life... More

Beautiful no matter what the season. We were able to drive cautiously up Trail Ridge this week and it never ceases to amaze. Even on days of the wind being abrasive, once you get onto a trail you are enveloped in silence.

The scenery is breathtaking and you can see forever!. It's beautiful any season. We like to go as soon as it opens to see the snow, mid summer to see the wildlife and wildflowers, and in the fall to see the colors of the tundra.It can be really crowded during tourist season so take the drive early or later in...
