Trail Ridge Road is the name for the stretch of Highway 34 that is the highest continuous highway in the United States. Also known as Trail Ridge Road/Beaver Meadow National Scenic Byway, it traverses Rocky Mountain National Park from Estes Park, Colorado in the east to Grand Lake, Colorado in the west. It crosses the continental divide at Milner Pass(elev. 10,758 feet) and reaches a maximum elevation of 12,183 feet , near Fall River Pass.(elev. 11,796 feet). Near the highest point on the road is another pass, Iceberg Pass (elev. 11,827 feet).
Trail Ridge Road is closed during the winter, and often remains closed until late spring or early summer depending on the snowpack.
