Trail Ridge Road, open all day

Sky-Hi News Staff Report

Beginning Wednesday, June 1 Trail Ridge Road is open 24 hours a day with no more planned nightly closures, according to spokesperson Kyle Patterson of Rocky Mountain National Park.

However, the road will still be subject to closures based on weather and road conditions, she said.

Visitors should expect icy conditions particularly during early morning.

Because weather conditions may change rapidly, park visitors should be prepared to adjust travel plans accordingly and are encouraged to call the park’s Trail Ridge Road recorded phone line at 970-586-1222.

Park staff will update the recorded line during and after regular office hours, when the road status changes.
