Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado — Trail Ridge Road in Rocky Mountain National Park is officially closed to traffic during the season.

Roads throughout the park are partially closed during the winter each year due to snowy winter conditions, strong winds, and sub-zero temperatures of over 10,000 feet.

Trail Ridge Road wasn’t intended for an all-season road, 11 miles, about 11,500 feet, with few guardrails and no shoulders.

For now, Trail Ridge Road remains open from the Rainbow Curve on the east side of the park to the Morner Pass on the west side of the park. These closures will eventually move to the Many Parks Curve on the east and the Colorado River Trailhead on the west in winter.

The sections of Bear Lake Road, Moraine Park, Horseshoe Park and Trail Ridge Road along the Kaunichi Valley are still open.

Last year, Trail Ridge Road November 17th season closed.. It usually resumes in the last week of May. Open on May 28th this year..

Old Fall River Road in the park Closed for October 4th season..

Trail Ridge Road and Old Fall River Road will remain open to bicycle and chained pets until November 30th. Chained pets and bicycles are only allowed on the road, not on the side trails. Both of these roads will return to “Winter Trail Status” on December 1st. This means that bicycles and stringed pets will not be allowed beyond the closed gate. Pedestrians, snowshoes and skiers will continue to have access to the road.

No reservations are required to enter the park during the season.
