Note: Fall River Road is a seasonal but very scenic one-way drive within the Rocky Mountain National Park. While the park is open year round, Fall River Road is open generally from June through Sept (depending upon weather). Due to the steep drops along the roadside, once snow starts falling the road is generally closed for the season. The views are quite breathtaking, and well worth the drive on the dirt road. Fall River Road completes it's adventure by topping out at the Alpine Visitor's center and gift shop on Trail Ridge Road (so yes, there is a way to get back down to Estes!). This round trip makes a lovely day drive, pack a picnic lunch & stop along the way for short walks to the most breathtaking scenery you've ever seen!

Note: Much of the area around Estes Park is surrounded by similar inspiring rock formations – perfect for you if you're a Bighorn Sheep or a rock climber!

Note 1: Alpine tundra starts at "tree-line" (where the climate is too harsh for trees to grow), normally at around 11,500 feet above sea level.

Note 2: Trail Ridge Road runs from Estes Park, up over the Continental Divide, and down the other side of the Rockies to Grand Lake. It was built upon a trail that was used by the Ute Indian tribe in their seasonal travels. You'll find the climate significantly different from the east side of the mountain range to the west side.

Note: There's a fabulous horse-back trail ride that starts at Moraine Park. You couldn't ask for a more scenic & breathtaking day! Also, be sure to visit the museum there.

Bear Lake & Hallet's Peak (Rocky Mountain National Park)

Note: Bear Lake is a very easy and popular walk for people of all ages and abilities. It's primarily a paved path, but the views are incredible year round. In the winter, it's a popular snow shoeing destination.

Have you ever seen skies so blue?
