Why the Owner Chose Estes Park: Big Elk Meadows is a very private, mountain community with about 165 homes and cabins. About 1/3 of the properties are occupied year around. Big Elk is located 5 miles along rustic roads from US Highway 36 between Lyons and Estes Park, Colorado. It is surrounded by tens of thousands of acres of Roosevelt National Forest. The National Forest offers hiking, biking, mountain biking, hunting, horseback riding and lots of peace and tranquility. It is a great place for the children as the community offers a lake, 2 tennis courts, a basketball court, volleyball court, a baseball field, heated swimming pool, a picnic pavilion, and a playground.
There are hiking and horse trails in many directions into the National Forest. This forest area is known as area 20 by hunters. It is the most prolific elk hunting and deer hunting in the state of Colorado. Some residents bring their horse down from the common horse pasture and ready themselves for an extended horseback ride into the National Forest. There they can hunt, enjoy fishing in a mountain lake, watch deer and elk wander near. There is some world class trout fishing in the N. Saint Vrain River, not far away.
Off road vehicle enthusiasts can also enjoy the designated trails in the surrounding forest. There is a camp at Johnny Park, nearby, for ATV, four wheel drive and ORV lovers.
Big Elk Meadows is about 45 minutes from Boulder Colorado, about 1.25 hours from Denver and Denver International Airport. It is about 25 minutes from Estes Park and the continental divide.
Enjoy your vacation in the beautiful Rocky Mountains. Our cabin is located 16 miles from Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park, 15 miles to Lyons, and 30 miles to Boulder.
