  • I have walked this road to the Alpine Visitor Center as an alternative to the more famous TRR. I was driving a pick up so everything was more beautiful and exciting, as the road is not paved (is still passable to all cars, with the due care). I came in early, at 7.45 and met only 2 machines, partly because the road is narrow and one-way street and that's what makes it even more fascinating: you're alone with nature, its colours and its noise. We enter slowly in the Park until you arrive at the Visitor Center. I highly recommend it to soak in the natural beauty of Colorado. I left my heart!

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.
