We are located in Estes Park, gateway to Rocky Mountain National Park. Must do activities include hiking some of the more than 300 miles of trails in the National Park. Some favorites are any of the trails out of the Bear Lake and Moraine Park areas. The free Park Shuttle Bus System operates in this area from late May through early October and is convenient and easy to use. Check with the Park Service for detailed route and schedule information. Taking a free Ranger Guided Hike is a fun and informative way to get to know the National Park. Pick up a Park newspaper at any visitor center or entrance station for more information. The entrance fee for the Park is $20 per vehicle and is valid for 7 days. A bargain! Other outdoor activities include horseback riding, flyfishing, rock climbing, and photography. Many outfitters are available to assist with these and other activities.

Climbing Longs Peak (14,259') is a goal of many who visit this area. This is a serious hike that involves some rock scrambling and should not be taken lightly. Careful planning and proper conditioning are a must.

No visit is complete without a journey up Trail Ridge Road, usually open by Memorial Day weekend. This paved road tops out at over 12,000' and has several overlooks with spectacular views. Stop at the Trail Ridge Store and Alpine Visitor Center (11,796') then return, or continue on to Grand Lake and back for a full day of exploration.

The town of Estes Park hosts several festivals and events throughout the summer and also has lots of shops and restaurants. Insider tip: Park at the fairgrounds and ride the free shuttle to the Visitor Center. From there it is a short walk to Elkhorn Ave. and the Riverwalk. You can also catch the shuttle bus into the National Park from the Visitor Center. For more info go to www.visitestespark.com or stop in at the Estes Park Visitor Center.

Other activities might include a walk or bicycle ride around Lake Estes, a boat rental at the Marina, or a round of golf. Bicycles can be rented at Estes Park Mountain Shop just below the Lake Estes dam. They also rent flyfishing gear, guide trips, and have an indoor climbing gym (great fun for kids and adults).

A hike up Prospect Mountain (8900') from our front door affords panoramic views of the Continental Divide and the Estes Valley. This moderate hike with no crowds is well worth the effort and easily accessed through our neighborhood.

Of course you can always just relax and enjoy the views from our deck. Ahhhh.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: We moved to Estes Park in 1993 to live and play in the mountains of Colorado. We love hiking, camping, and backpacking. We designed and built this home in 1999 and feel grateful to live in this beautiful place.

Why the Owner Chose Estes Park:
We chose this location because of the beautiful, framed view of Twin Sisters Peak and the convenient access to everything. We love the big pine trees and all of the wildlife we see here. We also like sitting on the deck for a relaxing meal in the warmer months. There is over an acre of land which allows for space and privacy, and room for the wildlife to pass through. We are still close to town for shopping and eating out. Also, Rocky Mountain National Park is just minutes from here without having to drive through town. Very convenient, especially in the summer months.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Peaceful, quiet setting with great views on 1+ acre of land. Frequent wildlife such as deer, elk, and bobcat. Convenient access to Rocky Mountain National Park and the town of Estes Park. Hike up Prospect Mountain (8900') from our home for panoramic views of the continental divide and surrounding area.
