  • Beautiful panorama view This is perhaps one of the best views in Rocky Mountain National Park. It also seems to often be the last turn out before the rest of Trail Ridge Road is closed due to weather after mid-October. Although we were there on such a day, and it was flurrying lightly, I can still appreciate the beauty, especially with a small amount of snow capping the nearby peaks. The parking area is relatively large with bathroom facilities. Worth the drive and the stop, even if you have to turn around and head back from there.
  • Beautiful views and a must stop if you're in the area. Great place for a photo op! We even got out and hiked a bit.
  • Great outlook, there is a lot of parking. On October 20, 2016, this was the last available stop before the road was closed to vehicle traffic. You can continue walking/biking if it is switched to trail status and not totally shutdown. Views looking east toward the Sheep Lakes and Alluvial Fan, and for about 270°. Elevation is about 10,500.
  • Awesome view in one of the most beautiful national parks in the United States. Had a great time there
  • Really cool place but parking is a PITA. Prepare to wait for a long time. They have some food and drinks and a nice walk up to a summit.
