Synopsis of the day:

This is a short and pretty drive that affords panoramic views of the eastern side of the Rocky Mountains known locally as the Front Range. If you arrive in Denver early in the morning, consider a side trip to Estes Park, CO, and into Rocky Mountain National Park, driving Fall River Road and Trail Ridge Road.


Follow the exit signs on Pena Blvd. to I-70 West, then take I-25 North. Please note that maps will show that E-470 connects to I-25 N, but know that E-470 is a private toll road with frequent stops to pay. Eight miles after you cross into Wyoming, exit I-25 North to I-80 East. Take Exit # 362 and turn Left on Central Avenue to downtown Cheyenne.

If you are going to Rocky Mountain National Park, get off of I-25 at Exit 243 and turn left on CO 66 through Longmont and Lyons to Estes Park. As you go into the center of town, turn left on Moraine Avenue.  The Rocky Mountain National Park Visitors Center is about one mile on the left. When you decide to leave Estes Park, take a left on Big Thompson Avenue, US 34, through the Big Thompson Canyon and Loveland, CO to I-25. The entrance here is a cloverleaf so North is a right turn just after passing under the freeway. Take I-25 north into Wyoming.
