As of May 22, the one and only road through Rocky Mountain National Park is officially open. This is a spectacular drive from Grand Lake, over the divide, to Estes Park. On the way, you will most likely see tons of wildlife and definitely amazing views. Be sure to stop at the Alpine Visitor’s Center at the top of the divide and take the short hike for the best views. Always have extra warm clothing with you, as the temperature is always colder at the top.
The park is offering “Free-Admission Weekends” during the summer to help promote affordable vacations. Take the family for a ride to the top of the world. Check out more on Rocky Mountain Nat. Park.
