Estes Park Activities At Your Doorstep
Rocky Mountain National Park – A living showcase of the grandeur of the Rocky Mountains. With elevations ranging from 8,000 feet in the wet, grassy valleys to 14,259 feet at the weather-ravaged top of Long’s Peak, a visitor to the park has endless opportunities for viewing Elk, mule deer, moose, bighorn sheep, black bears, coyotes, cougars, eagles, hawks and scores of smaller animals delight wildlife-watchers of all ages. Wildflower-lovers are never disappointed in June and July when the meadows and hillsides are splashed with botanical color. Autumn visitors can relax among the golden aspens or enjoy the rowdier antics of the elk rut (mating season).
Fly fishing, hiking, biking, rock climbing, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, horseback riding and the thrill of viewing mountain wildlife. Enjoy our rich historical tours, terrific golf courses, intriguing museum exhibitions, and our many local shops and art galleries. Estes Park has something for every member of your family. You’ll never do it all in one trip, but you can always come back for more!
