Rocky Mountain National Park’s Trail Ridge Road, famous for being the highest continually paved highway in the United States, is an invigorating 40-mile drive. It takes you up and over the Rocky Mountains and offers spectacular views from exhilarating heights and fresh mountain air.

Our 90-minute PARK APPROVED guided tour begins at the park’s east entrance near the town of Estes Park. You’ll climb to an elevation of 12,183 feet, before heading down to the town of Grand Lake where the tour concludes. Your views will be of verdant valleys and meadowlands, majestic mountain peaks, canyons cut by glaciers and delicate alpine tundra. With a watchful eye, you are sure to see many of the park’s abundant birds and wildlife.

We feature an impressive group of knowledgeable Park Rangers who explain the geological process that created the park’s diverse landscape and stunning scenery. They’ll talk about life zones, forests, fire and fragile plant communities. You’ll hear about the park’s birds of prey, beaver, bighorn sheep, and more. And stories will be told about the park’s cultural history, which bring to life the colorful characters who influenced the development of Rocky Mountain National Park.

Professionally narrated and filled with music and nature sounds (recorded on location) this tour is as entertaining as it is educational. Trail Ridge Road is typically closed during winter due to snow. But, this audio tour can still be enjoyed any time, anywhere.
