Trail Ridge Road Open with Night Closures

As of Friday, May 29, Trail Ridge Road in Rocky Mountain National Park opened. Due to heavy melting on the road during the day and freezing temperatures at night, visitors should plan for night closures occurring at 8:00pm until conditions change.  Road crews and rangers will reassess conditions each morning and reopen the road when and if conditions allow.  Alpine Visitor Center and Trail Ridge Store are expected to open soon.


Weather conditions can change rapidly.  Travelers are encouraged to call the park’s Trail Ridge Road recorded phone line at (970) 586-1222 for updates during and after regular office hours.  For more information about Rocky Mountain National Park please visit or call the park’s Information Office at (970) 586-1206.
