Overview

Offering one of the finest views worthy of a short drive, Storm Mountain Road is an offroad adventure that climbs to the summit of Storm Mountain near Drake, Colorado. Once at the top, you are treated to an unobstructed view of cities in the front range valley and Estes Park, the gateway to the Rocky Mountain National Park, from a single location. This popular route offers the best view of any trail in northern Colorado. Whether you are interested in a day trip or a weekend getaway, Strom Mountain is a must-do trail. Keep a sharp eye out for deer, elk, moose, and bear, as all are abundant in this forest. Not everyone can take in this beauty, but because you drive an offroad vehicle, you can take advantage of this exquisite opportunity.
