Things To Do in Estes Park, CO and the Surrounding Area

Estes Park is most often referred to as the gateway to Rocky Mountain National Park. The main entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park is located just 4 miles west of downtown Estes Park on Highway 36, which is also one of the town's main roads.

When is the best time to visit Estes Park?

If snowshoeing, skiing, ice skating, and whisky drinking are more your style, plan a trip between November and April.

The Forest Canyon Overlook

The Forest Canyon Overlook is a short, easy .3-mile hike with an incredible view.  At nearly 12,000 feet, you'll have a great view of the pools of the Gorge Lakes and the towering mountains of the Continental Divide.

Rocky Mountain  National Park

The park encompasses 415 square miles of tall mountain peaks, deep crystal blue lakes, lush meadows, and rushing rivers spread across the Continental Divide.

Trail Ridge Road

The road is open seasonally, closed during the winter, and connects Estes Park with the town of Grand Lake. It's a spectacular stretch of road providing miles of incredible views!
