About this spot
Forest Canyon Overlook is located at 11,700 feet (3566 m) above sea-level on Trail Ridge Road. It is in the delicate alpine tundra a world of miniature plants which survive the harsh conditions by remaining close to the ground where the temperature is slightly warmer and the winds are less harsh. There is a short paved walking path leading to an overlook of the mysterious Forest Canyon, one of the most rugged areas in all of Colorado. From here you can look west and get a glimpse of the Never Summer Mountains.
