Visitors to our area will want to drive the highest national highway in the country.   As Hwy 34 winds itself over the top of our Rocky Mountain National Park just to the west, it becomes known as Trail Ridge Road.   Trail Ridge Road is the highest paved highway in the country as it passes over the top of Rocky Mountain National Park at more than 12,000.  It is typically open for traffic from Memorial Day weekend to late September each summer.   Early summer travelers will experience driving by walls of snow perhaps as high as 15'.   This is a must do when you are visiting us here in Estes Park.
