I view this as part of the Trail Ridge Road drive. There are pullouts and parking going each way so use them. There is a larger lot on the other side of the view.

If you're on the South Loop Road make sure you stop at all the overlooks. This one gives you a fantastic view of Jackstraw Mountain. It's covered in beautiful snow and if you have a telephoto lens you can get some great close-up photos of the snow pack.

The Trail Ridge Road has many places to stop and it is worth spending a few minutes to admire the scenery at the Farview Curve Overlook. It has a small marked parking area and a story board to tell you what you are viewing - the scenery is spectacular.

This is one of many places to stop along Trail Ridge Road and enjoy the view. Farview Overlook is a few miles west of the Alpine Visitor Center. Unlike some of the overlooks, this one is marked with a sign. There is a small parking area and a few signs to tell you what you are looking at. No restrooms... More
