Trail Ridge Road, Rocky Mountains, Colorado, USA
Trail Ridge Road in Rocky Mountain National Park is open for the season but visitors should keep an eye out for icy conditions from melting snow.
The road historically opens on Memorial Day but that was delayed by a major snowstorm on May 18 and 19 that dropped more than 3 feet of snow in the lower elevations of the park. Plow operators were looking at 8-14 feet of snow at higher elevations.
Rocky Mountain National Park’s historic structures threatened by deferred maintenance
The Trail Ridge Store and Alpine Visitor Center are expected to open later this week, according to the Rocky Mountain National Park. Presently, night-time closures are not in effect.
Trail Ridge Road is the highest continuous paved road in the U.S., climbing to 12,183 feet and connecting Estes Park and Grand Lake.
