Trail Ridge Road, “Rocky Mountain National Park’s heavily traveled highway to the sky” and the highest continuous paved road in America is now closed for the season.

According to the Denver Post, the road is closed for the season as of today, Wednesday October 17th, 2012, ten days earlier that the road closed last year and its earliest closing in more than 10 years.

The road has closed intermittently because of weather since Oct. 11.

According to the Coloradoan, Trail Ridge Road is in “winter trail status.” (Meaning bicycles and pets are not permitted beyond the closed gates.)

The Trail Ridge Road recorded phone status line is (970) 586-1222, but the road won’t be opened until spring of 2013.

It usually opens near the end of May. (This year it opened on May 14.)
