  • What a view! I was there before the whole road was open for the summer so I was able to park the car in the viewpoint lot and walk out further on the closed road! There's plenty of parking and bathrooms at this viewpoint too!
  • 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

Where to stay in Rocky Mountain National Park

Camping offers one of the best ways to immerse yourself in the nature of Rocky Mountain National Park. The park offers more than 500 individual sites spread out over five developed campgrounds, and wilderness camping expands your options even further. Many visitors stay in the eastside gateway town of Estes Park, where you can choose from lodges, resorts, economy motels, small inns, bed and breakfasts, and cabins. The town features a lake and views of the park's sharp peaks. On the park's western side, a handful of lodges, inns, cabins, and motels are clustered around Grand Lake and Shadow Mountain Lake. You'll also find campgrounds around Lake Granby.
