Trail Ridge Road in Rocky Mountain National Park Has Reopened

Beauty in our great state reaches one of it’s peaks at this time of year in Colorado. Seeing the Fall colors in the Rocky Mountains is one of the most breathtaking sights a person can take in. One of the best spots to see the Fall colors is on the highest continuously paved road in the United States, Trail Ridge Road. And now the road which had already closed once is back open to travelers.

Trail Ridge Road is the name for the stretch of U.S. Highway 34 that cuts through Rocky Mountain National Park between the towns of Estes Park and Grand Lake.

The road peaks at 12,183 feet in elevation. Just west of the high point is Fall River Pass, elevation 11,796 feet, and the Alpine Visitor Center. For the best views exit the west side of the park and continue on US 34 down into Grand Lake.

With the extended weather forecast it will likely close and reopen again. A good reminder this time of year to check the updated recorded Trail Ridge Road status line at (970) 586-1222 when making travel plans.
