Hours

Rocky Mountain National Park is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, although certain roads and facilities may be closed seasonally. Located just a few miles from downtown Grand Lake, the Kawuneeche Visitor Center is open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily, year-round, closing only on Thanksgiving and Christmas Day. However, regular hours are reduced in fall, winter and spring (call 970 627-3471 for exact hours during these seasons.) Trail Ridge Road is also open year-round from the western entrance (by the Kawuneeche Visitor Center) to the Colorado River Trailhead.
