Trail Ridge Road in Rocky Mountain National Park

Hwy 34 thru Loveland, Hwy 36/66 thru Lyons & the Peak to Peak Colorado Scenic Byway are all open and provide access to Estes Park from Denver & the Front Range.   Some road construction in effect.

Old Fall River Rd has been repaired, and will reopen in summer 2015. 

Drive up Trail Ridge Road to the alpine tundra and sample the air at 12,000 feet. Get off the beaten path and glimpse the backcountry from Old Fall River Road (one-way, dirt, uphill). Enjoy the Colorado Scenic Byways & Peak to Peak Highway that leads to Central City gaming or Eldora downhill skiing. Watch for bighorn sheep in the narrows of the Big Thompson canyon as you go to the flatlands to shop the Outlet Mall or see the Budweiser Clydesdales. Estes Park is a hub of the best scenic drives in Colorado.
