I am afraid of heights. If you are also afraid of heights you should be the person in control and behind the wheel. It can be hell in the passenger seat. The views are without parallel. The road is really, really busy which means that...More

If a picture is worth 1000 words there is not enough film nor digital memory to capture the beauty. Enjoy the scenic pull outs. Wildlife, trees, water falls, and the tundra are a few thing to prepare yourself for. Take the time to enjoy the...More

We started the drive in Estes and went to Grand Lake. The higher you travel, the more fantastic the views. When we arrived at the tundra area, both sides of the road were covered with herds of elk. They were everywhere! My young children were...More

The road was a great way to experience Rocky Mountain National Park. We easily entered from the south and stopped at the visitor's center. There was a book that pinpointed and described various stops along the way--if you have the funds, I would recommend it!...More

I can't imagine visiting RMNP and not driving the Trail Ridge Road. Start early to avoid the crowds- it does get busy. Stop at the overlooks- I recommend the Forest Canyon overlook- and watch for marmots, elk and big horn sheep. Stay hydrated so the...More

After spending the night in the park we drove over Trail Ridge road from Estes Park. What a magnificent drive. The views were awesome. We saw plenty of wildlife during the drive. Elk were in the fields above the tree line and were easy to...More

This is a absolutely gorgeous park. The Trail Ridge Road is fantastic. We drove the entire road and went through forests and tundra areas. Even during the day we were able to see so much wildlife. There was even snow still banked high on the...More

A correction to the previous reply - Hidden Valley has flush toilets not vault toilets and there is a water refill station at Hidden Valley. It is not the Alpine Visitor Center itself that has food. There is a small café... More
