We were able to spend a long time enjoying this overlook with no worries about traffic or parking. We were stopped here by a flagman due to road construction, aand as a result spent more time here than we normally would have.

I have included a photo from the morning and one from the afternoon. Personally, I prefer the morning views but the afternoon can be quite nice though is sometimes starts to cloud over, muting the colors. There are other curves to see, as well. Many Parks Curve, on the east side, is probably the best -I do not know why... More

This is very accessible from the west end of RMNP. Plenty of room for parking and pullout to accommodate visitors. INCREDIBLE VISTAS!

After going over the top of Trail Ridge Road, one would think that the views could not get any better. But Farview Curve Overlook is worth the stop. It comes up quickly and a blind curve. Not much parking, so be reasonable and courteous and you should be able to get in and out. Often in the summer there is... More

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 use that lot cross the road carefully using the provided cross walk. These views change during the day depending on the sun angle. Regardless,... More

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 views at some of the overlooks on the eastern side of the park are arguably more spectacular, but many visitors to the park never get this far west on Trail Ridge Road and you may find this spot more peaceful. As others have commented in other reviews, the bark beetle problem has taken its toll on the scenery, but... More

The infestation of the bark beetle makes Rocky Mountain National Park a sad place to visit these days....still beautiful but of great concern.

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
