  • Great house for family reunion

    "My extended family of 12 rented the home for 4 nights in late July. It was perfect for us. We used the grill once and otherwise cooked most meals in the spacious kitchen, which had everything we needed. The beds were comfortable and we appreciated the 3 1/2 baths. What we liked most about the house were the scenic trails close-by. Numerous deer strolled through the area everyday. It was close enough to town, RMNP and various restaurants and activities. I would definitely recommend it to anyone. The owner was nice to work with."

  • Great Cabin to Explore RMNP From

    "This lovely cabin is a great location to be your base to explore RMNP and Estes Park. It's located on the west side of Estes Park on the road to one of the RMNP visitor centers and entry points. It is among a group of cabins located a few hundred feet from the Big Thompson river and there are chairs and a picnic table to sit back with your morning cup of coffee. My wife and I were there with our three year old and it was a perfect size cabin. The kitchen has a good assortment of appliances and utensils that would not limit your ability to cook anything. The cabin is kept very clean. This was our first trip to Estes Park and we look forward to returning and renting this same cabin."

Estes Park Travel Tips

At the entrance of Rocky Mountain National Park, Estes Park is one of the most desirable vacation destinations in Colorado thanks to stunning mountain vistas and a charming downtown. Situated 7,522 feet above sea level, the entire area is home to breathtaking views, incredible natural scenery and plenty of skiing and hiking adventures to be had. The town itself has the feel of a quaint mountain village yet allows for a range of phenomenal cuisine and culture in the middle of an outdoorsman's paradise. Whether you're looking for a romantic getaway, a memorable family vacation or just isolation from the fast pace of the city for a few days, Estes Park is the perfect destination.

Estes Park Attractions

Known by many as the gate to Rocky Mountain National Park, Estes Park is a veritable treasure trove of activities based around its immense natural beauty. Featuring guided tours, world class camping, great hiking and an absolutely endless supply of beautiful backdrops for family photographs, Estes Park is perfect for those who appreciate the great outdoors. The four trailheads accessible from the town offer fantastic access to the local hiking trails and phenomenal ski slopes, as well.

Within Rocky Mountain National Park alone there are over 100 separate peaks that rise above the height of 11,000 feet. As a result, Estes Park has become a prime destination for climbers and backpackers from across the globe. Strap into a harness, don't forget the crampons and scale some incredible rock faces or, if you're looking for a slightly more tame experience, take some of the winding backpacking trails to the top of these beautiful peaks. Since many of these peaks run directly along the continental divide, climbers can take in the unforgettable sight of watching snow begin its long journey either east to the Atlantic or west to the Pacific.

Estes Park Things to Do

If you're visiting Estes Park in either the spring, summer or autumn, then you'll want to take part in the fantastic trail running scene. While the city does offer a variety of trails that cater to all skill levels, some of the most beautiful scenery is found on two of the more challenging routes, Black Lake Trail and Lumpy Ridge Loop. While the former is an intermediate, 9.6-mile trail, Lumpy Ridge Loop runs for over 10 miles and features a nearly 3-mile change in elevation from start to finish. Black Lake Trail is recommended for those desiring water-centric viewpoints, as it passes by two lakes and a series of waterfalls. Lumpy Ridge, considering its changes in elevation, caters more to those looking to view the world from above as they pass through mountainous ridges and rugged terrain.

Of course, some people will prefer to experience the beauty of Estes Park from the valley below. Since its official sanctioning by the United States government nearly a century ago, Rocky Mountain National Park has served as a habitat to both domesticated and wild horses. A variety of options are available through the park for horseback riders of all levels, including day trips and backcountry horse camping sponsored by the National Parks Office. Those who would prefer to be a bit more independent can set off alone and will find over 260 miles of beautiful wilderness trails for their enjoyment. Both Thunder Lake Trail and Finch Lakes Trail are popular among vacationers and locals. These trails are accessible from the Wild Basin Trailhead, which is easily found from multiple park entrances.
