“Beautiful landscapes”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

I expected more stunning scenery and spectacular from this area. In Colorado there are places so beautiful this site is a bit disappointing. BEAR LAKE area was the most beautiful!
Strolled in late August 2012 maybe during this period less amazing sights. The way from Denver to the Rockies was amazing,Peak to Peak, and the way from the Rockies to FORT COLLINS Highway 34.

“Good, we did the Trail Ridge road but we had been to Yellowstone!!”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

We were on a road trip and we had done Yellowstone and the the Beartooth pass and this was a little bit disappointing. Glad we did it as it is the highest paved road and a tick in the box

“Beautiful Place to Visit”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

ON our twenty sixth wedding anniversary we decided to go to Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado. This was the most amazing and beautiful trip we had this year. Hwy-34 from city of Estes Park was a beautiful drive to the national park. We took the beautiful but nerve racking eleven miles of unpaved road instead of Hwy-34 but it was worth it. Love to go back again.

“12,000 Feet up and slightly dizzy!”
Reviewed August 18, 2012

Visiting the Denver area, specifically Erie, Colorado and took a day trip to the Rocky Mt. National Park. They have a couple of routes, or more, that one can use to visit the area. The one way roads are for the adventure travelers. These are unpaved but well marked. We visited Trail Ridge welcoming center. The initial trip started at Estes Park and we traveled the one lane road to the Alpine visitor center. (about 9 miles) They have are great seasonal center with food and other purchases available. This road is also accessible from Estes Park but is a modern version two way paved facility. So we went up the old road and came down the new one. This area is the top part of the accessible ridge. Saw some Elk, birds etc. Took some great photos and enjoyed the cool temperatures. $20 per car access fee but well worth it. Other access pass prices are available for purchase if one plans to come back for other visits. Great for walking, hiking, photos, picnics etc. We figured it was about 20 degree difference in temperature from the bottom to the top, so plan ahead. Enjoy the views!

“Breathtaking in every sense”
Reviewed August 9, 2012

Daily sunrise and sunsets were stellar. Overnight just enjoyed natural breeze, no a/c needed. Areas visited front range, Centennial, Ft. Collins, Longmont, all great towns. Familirs, groups, couples, singles, something for everyone.
