Half way along Trail Ridge Road (US 34) through the center of Rocky Mountain National Park, Forest Canyon Overlook (11,710 feet) provides a grand panorama over many square miles of wilderness, centered on the deep canyon of the Big Thompson River. To the north, smooth-sided Sundance Mountain rises several hundred feet above the highway, but the more spectacular summits are to the south - most prominent are Stones Peak and Terra Tomah Mountain. In the west, the views extend for over 15 miles, towards the continental divide which marks the national park boundary.
To navigate in a panorama, use the mouse to click and drag the picture left or right, or the keyboard arrow keys. Press the Shift key to zoom in or the Control key to zoom out.
