Starting on May 26, 2023, Trail Ridge Road is open for the summer months according to Estes Park News. Of course, this is always depending on road conditions as they can change within a moment's notice. With elevations as high as 12,183 feet above sea level, Mother Nature doesn't really care what month it is. When she wants to snow, she will snow. To check the status of Trail Ridge Road, you can call the prerecorded phone line at (970) 586-1222. This recording will be updated if there is a status change to Trail Ridge Road.
