Rocky Mountain National Park has a new recorded phone line dedicated to the status of Trail Ridge Road. The number is (970) 586-1222. This recording should be helpful for park visitors and the park’s gateway communities of Estes Park and Grand Lake, especially in spring and fall when the status of the road can change frequently.

 Park staff will update the recorded line during and after regular office hours, when the road status changes. The best phone number for general park information is still (970) 586-1206.
