As you round each bend of the Trail Ridge Road wildflower-dusted meadows and subalpine forests adorn sky-piercing peaks. The Old Fall River Road is one of the top attractions for visitors to Rocky Mountain National Park cabins. Once an Indian hunting route, it boasts views of Chasm Falls. Trail Ridge Road sweeps silkily through a cinematic mountain wilderness, traversing 4,000 feet in elevation within just a few minutes.
The majority of the park's trails can also be hiked with snowshoes in the wintertime. Grab your poles and waterproof boots and you are ready to go! Ranger guided programs ferry you into sublime scenery which your ranger will illuminate with fascinating insights about ecology, geology and cultural heritage.
