“Couple of miles off I 25”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013 via mobile

By the time I drove off interstate 25 and I came all the way back I had driven through the park to the Colorado side I had driven a total of 14 miles. One section was closed. Saw deer and watched two people ice skating on one of the frozen lakes. I am sure the summer would be nice.

“Beautiful area, but damaged by forest fire”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

The area was just beautiful. We saw a lot of fall foliage. However, some of the areas were closed due to a past forest fire and were inaccessible.
