  • This is one of the must stops along the road in RMNP. Wide, scenic views of the mountains go for miles and miles around in all directions. It can get crowded, but its worth it to stop and just take ev...  more »
  • The trail ridge road has got multiple beautiful stops. I would highly recommend stopping at this spot because it gives a very wide angle view of the park. Must must get out the car and walk here. 
  • A challenging ride if you're height sensitive. We went to the top of Trail Ridge, so this may be the down trail on the other side of RMNP. We passed the Alpine Center. My husband drove and did a fine ...  more »

  • Breathtaking view! However that may be due the lack of oxygen... All jokes aside, it's absolutely beautiful. I also enjoyed watching the thriving wildlife. Careful if you are sensitive to altitude sickness though. This is at about 12k feet and above tree line.
  • This site will probably close soon in late October for the season until May, although it offers great views and a short walk along the first tundra access from the eastern approach along Trail Ridge Rd. The drive here from Rainbow Curve can be stressful although it evens out a bit after this stop.
  • Every turn off you see in RMNP should be a stop. Beautiful views in a beautiful park. Make sure to always stay on trail to protect the fragile terrain so those views remain lush!
  • Nice place to stop and very short walk to breathtaking photos.
  • Beautiful here. We were there super early. Not many people around. On our way back down (about 2 hours later) the place was packed.
