  • On the 80 km from crossing, the Trail Ridge Road views breathtaking. Plenty of parking to stop to enjoy the magnificent views. Given the altitude, "little wool" can is useful when you get out of the car. In addition to landscapes, it is not very difficult to observe local wildlife (deer in many or little shy marmots). It must however know that the road is open from May to October because of bad weather. At the beginning and end of the season, it is best to inquire before you undertake this journey.
