Explore Rocky Mountain National Park
Rocky Mountain National Park is situated along the northern edge of the C Lazy U Ranch. The famous Trail Ridge Road winds through the park, crossing the Continental Divide at a 12,183 ft. elevation, making it the highest continuous paved road in the Continental United States. Eleven miles of this highway travel above treeline, the elevation near 11,500 feet where the park’s evergreen forests come to a halt. As it winds across the tundra’s vastness to its high point, Trail Ridge Road offers visitors thrilling views, wildlife sightings and spectacular alpine wildflower exhibitions, all from the comfort of your car.
As with the ranch itself, it is never a surprise to see a wide variety of wildlife. You might spot herds of elk, deer and bighorn sheep. The Continental Divide provides a stunning backdrop to the meadows below. Let our Concierge help you plan a side-trip to the Park during your stay. At all elevations, the drive on Trail Ridge Road is a memorable adventure.
