  • Trail Ridge Road, which runs through the park, is the highest paved through-road in the US.
  • Go above 12,000 feet.
  • Go to Bear Lake! It's gorgeous and a beautiful little winter wonderland when it's snowing!!!
  • Make sure you hike the Ouzel Falls Trail. Its a light hike and so beautiful.
  • I just saw an elk!!!!!!! :-D
  • drive over Trail Ridge Road to the Continental Divide
  • Listen to elk bugling in the fall
  • Drive up the Old Fall River Road in the summer... gorgeous views and lots of great pull-offs to explore and photograph...
  • be careful driving. They dont have barriers on the winding roads that could easily have you fall to your death...its a 2000 ft drop off....
  • Use shuttle service so we climbers that have crash pads can park up top and aren't stuck hiking to the car because it stops at 7:30 pm
  • Best things to do in the park are hike, look for animals, and drive to the top. Also talk to rangers in the visitor center. They always have great recommendations!
  • So much to do, view the wildlife (elk on east / Moose on west side).. Camp, hike, or just enjoy the views!!!
  • I got here mid-May and it's still snowing badly. Gear up for worse scenario even when you arrive here in June
  • I saw my first moose here, mom and baby, so amazing!! great hiking and amazing wild life! def a must see
  • Amazing views of the Rockies. 12000 feet and counting.
  • Drive through and discover the grandeur of the Rocky Mountains. Come in the winter when blankets of white snow envelop the scenery. Snowboarding venues are also available. Fun for the entire family!
  • Well, who goes thinking it is a small park, it is not. You need at least two days to visit all the places in the park. For the ones going, I suggest to take a look in the Bear Lake and the Dream Lake
  • Lots of great scenic views and breathtaking scapes. It was cold when we visited so be sure to bundle up just in case!
  • Be sure to drive up Trail Ridge Road and stop at the Alpine Visitors Center to learn about the Park's flora and fauna. Sunrise and Sunset are great times to catch the view from the top.
  • Looking to add a little off-road adventure to your visit? Take a drive up Old Fall River Road to the Alpine Visitors Center. You need 4WD/AWD, but it's well worth the fun drive and great views.
