To many words to describe how beautiful it is! My Husband and I drove around mid october where the mountains just start getting snow man it was cold & windy. Make sure you bring proper foot wear and dress warmly if you do and stop along the drive. The air is so thin you can feel it if you are... More

This is one of the most scenic drives we’ve ever been on. Many pull offs offer spectacular views. At one point on the road there’s a large pull off near 12,000 ft. with jaw dropping scenery. The air was so thin I could feel it in my lungs. You have panoramic views of snow capped mountains and lakes. We watched... More

An entire day was spent traveling and stopping along the Trail Ridge Road. It is an amazing national treasure that should not be skipped. There are signs advising that it is not OK to feed animals but the kids at one stop couldn't get enough of the chipmunks that would eat out of their hands. It was a pretty cool... More

This time of year (Dec) Trail Ridge is only open to Many Parks Curve. This still a nice 8 mile drive through RMNP. Not as snowy as it has been in our past winter visits. Fair amount of snow at Hidden Valley. The boardwalk at Many Parks Curve was a little icy in spots but easily traveled. This drive is... More

We visited RMNP in Winter'14 and are still surprise by the views we saw. Even during snow RMNP is as beautiful as always. We were able to see Big Horn Ships, Elks, Deers and cayote.

I've always loved the road that leads you to different elevation with different landscape, and Trail Ridge Road definitely is one of those. we didn't make it the first day because of the snow, and got lucky the second day the snow is plowed out~ first half of the road is forest and grand view point, nice as all the...

Took 2 full days to explore this road and man was it worth it. Amazing drive with some nice hikes. To see the scenery change due to the elevation is just amazing.

Not for those with weak constitutions - pack a lunch and make a full day out of it. There's a lot of interest points to stop at along the way - bring a fishing rod and your license to fish the other side of the range too.

We were in the area for one afternoon in October. The colors of fall were fabulous! We didn't have a lot of time to hike and explore but the drive itself was a real treat. WOW! What gorgeous views! Absolutely breathtaking! I'd love to go back one day and explore more of this amazing place! Just beautiful! Lots of beautiful... More
