  • Fabulous Fall, Extraordinary Elk

    "We spent an absolutely wonderful fall week in the Sandtrap condo. Owners were wonderful. This was our return visit to this rental and were so excited to return. It was the rut season for the elk and we had a front row seat to it all out our Windows. So wonderful and interesting. Weather was wonderful. Condo is much more than you would expect. Can't wait to return. Town of Estes Park has recovered beautifully from the floods of 2013 and. the work on the highways is near completeion and repair, we had virtually no delays. Again. Terrific home ,town and nature. Cant recommend this home enough."

  • Wonderful Spring Break spot with our boys & dog!

    "We recently spent 4 nights in the 2 bedroom cabin over our Spring Break. We have been to the Estes Park area countless times and we feel we found a real gem at Overlook Ranch! Our cabin was clean, comfortable and didn't smell at all like dogs! (I had wondered if it would but it really didn't.) We enjoyed making a fire in the wood burning stove. We did lots of fun things at the ranch -frisbee golf, basketball, hiking, horseshoe and just relaxing. We saw deer and elk on the property. Ed let us see the other cabins are we are already trying to arrange a gathering to use the whole property! The big cabin and the little studio are very impressive with the attention to detail. We can hardly wait to go back. Our sons thought it was the perfect vacation. Thank Ed!!"

  • Great downtown loft location

    "This loft was nicely decorated and very clean. The location is terrific for walking anywhere for shopping and restaurants downtown. The loft has a great deck overlooking the river from which we spotted elk and deer walking the hill across the river. No street noise whatsoever, except for the sound of the river. We loved being able to take our dogs along, too, and there were several spots nearby for quick walks, and many businesses will allow the dogs to come in (ask first if it is not signed). Parking was not a problem for us in the large adjacent public lot , but we were visiting off-season. I don't think parking would be a problem even in high season since there are several other alternative lots nearby too. Amy was very easy to work with and accommodating."

  • Top Notch

    "Three couples comfortably stayed here at Buffalo Ridge Lodge for a week and never felt "under foot or cramped" at all. The three king-suites each with it's own huge bathroom and walk-in closets are magnificent. The views are incredible. A neighbor on each side, but not too close so privacy is still adequate. What I loved most is that absolutely everything in the home is top-notch... not like a lot of rentals where the furnishings and décor are bare bones and blah. This felt luxury at every moment. The owners are wonderful to deal with. We would definitely recommend to our friends and hope to return again ourselves."

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.
