Trail Ridge Road now open to Rainbow Curve

The view from Rainbow Curve on Trail Ridge Road

Rocky Mountain National Park announced yesterday, May 3, that Trail Ridge Road is now open up to Rainbow Curve. It is still closed between Rainbow and the Colorado River Trailhead on the west side. Weather permitting, the entire road will open May 27th. For current road status call 970-586-1222 for a recorded message.


    1. Rainbow Curve is usually as far as I go. I go up that far, enjoy the view for a while, maybe eat a lunch I’ve brought, and go back down. I promise, if they ask me, that I won’t allow any floods.

      1. There used to be an old old grand lodge on the downside to Grand Lake (but before you got there) Can’t remember the name, but think I’ll poke around and see if it’s still there. Looked like one of those old film sets – and so elegant to us as kids (Far too expensive for us to stay there those summers)
