We visit Rocky Mountain National Park on 2nd week of March 2014. We stay at River Stone and Bear Paw Resort located at beautiful village of Este Park. This small town is completed with everything that you need. Cafe, restaurants, shops, grocery store, etc. 90% of the shops are open even it was the very early of Spring. Our pretty... More

You don't realize how high up you are because of the numerous peaks surrounding you on the way up. But even if you can't tell by the views, the drastic drop in temperature will give it away. It dropped 38 degrees and added some steady wind on our visit to the top. Beautiful overlooks and excellent drive. I highly recommend... More

We drove through half of the national park and it is a amazing no matter where you are. Take time to take a short hike, plenty of well made trails, you might be lucky enough to see a chipmunk, elk, big horn sheep and even the odd waterfall. A free shuttle bus will take you between visitor centres. Make the... More

Rocky Mt. Nat. Park is one of the most beautiful parks in the USA. If you can, go in early spring or late fall. The town Estes will be slowing down and the roads should not be crowded. I think the pass stays open until late Oct. The most awesome mountains, lakes , trails, creeks. Tons of Elk and in... More

We spent about ½ day on the Trail Ridge Road, making several stops for sightseeing and short hiking. The views of the Rocky Mountains and surrounding areas are indescribably beautiful. The road is well maintained and the traffic flows at a reasonable pace. The ranger at the Fall River visitors center (near Estes Park) was quite helpful with suggestions and... More

The most wonderful experience... Being wined and dined and entertained whilst gazing out at uninterrupted views of the Canadian Rockies is an experience I will definitely recommend to any traveller who loves the ultimate holiday. Just loved all aspects of the two days from Vancouver to Jasper with a very comfortable overnight stop in Kamloops. The crew were very attentive... More

Every view was a postcard! Wonderfully healthy, beautiful herds of elk everywhere. Get to the park early and it is not only free, but you see so much more wildlife. Watch the sun rise over the mountains and see some incredibly beautiful views. As one friend described Rt 34 Trail Ridge Road as the OMG Trail Ridge Road, from the... More
