With more than 400 square miles of unmatched beauty, Rocky Mountain National Park continues to be one of the nation’s top national parks. Whether you plan a visit in the summer or winter, you are sure to be awe-struck by all of the natural beauty waiting to be experienced here. This national park is great for avid outdoorsmen and families exploring the many trails. Estes Park is the gateway town to the east of the Rocky Mountain National Park and is a great day trip. Visitors can explore 350 miles of hiking trails winding their way through the rocky terrain, ranging from advanced to beginner skill levels. The adventure doesn’t stop there. Visitors can also enjoy fishing, rock climbing, scenic drives, opportunities for photography, bird watching, backpacking and camping, horseback riding, snowshoeing, sledding, and skiing in the park. Regardless of what activity you choose to enjoy during your visit to the Rocky Mountain National Park, it’s almost certain that you will be able to spot some wildlife. Aside from birds, amphibians, and fish, there are more than 60 animals that call this national park home, including moose, bears, elk, bighorn sheep, bobcats, mountain lions, deer, coyotes, marmots, pikas, and numerous birds. You can often spot elk grazing in the meadows and tundra with the occasional coyote following close behind hidden in the grass. Another animal often seen is the moose. These massive creatures can weigh up to 1,500 pounds when fully grown and reach heights of seven feet at the shoulder. Moose are commonly spotted in shallow lakes and in marshes.
Family-Friendly Activities in Estes Park
No matter the season, there are a host of activities in Estes Park that will keep the whole family entertained. Whether it’s a jaunt on cross-country skis over the snow-covered trails, family sledding, and tubing, boating on Lake Estes, or hiking on a stunning trail in Rocky Mountain National Park, the scenery is bound to occupy and inspire.
In winter, Estes Park becomes a snow-covered outdoor playground, perfect for families to enjoy. Sleds are available in downtown gear shops, which can easily be picked up for a day on the gentle slopes. Within Rocky Mountain National Park, Hidden Valley is the only area where sledding is permitted. This former ski area has been converted into a sledding zone. On the weekends, a warming hut with picnic tables is available. Enjoy some good old-fashioned sledding in the Hidden Valley area of Rocky Mountain National Park during your family reunion! Another popular family activity in winter is snowshoeing. Even with no experience, snowshoeing has a faster learning curve than skiing and can be enjoyed by everyone in the family. The former ski trails above the sledding area can be used for snowshoeing, as can most any trail within the park bounds.
Ice skating is also a great activity for the whole family and is available during winter months at Trout Haven as well as the YMCA of the Rockies. Bundle up the family and spend some time making cherished memories on these outdoor rinks! Both locations offer onsite skate rentals.
Winter or summer, there are so many ways for your family to enjoy time spent together in Estes Park. During the summer months, the sun warms the air and the sparkling Lake Estes stands as an invitation for some playtime on the water. The Lake Estes Marina offers a variety of rentals that your family can enjoy, such as kayaks, paddleboards, paddle boats, canoes, and pontoon boats. Situated at the confluence of the Big Thompson River and Fall River, and home to two lakes, Estes Park also offers great fishing opportunities. The marina offers rods and reels for rent in Estes Park CO, and there are also a number of private ponds in the area that offer fishing opportunities where you pay by what you catch.
Of course, Estes Park is home to a vast network of hiking trails both within and outside the National Park boundaries, with many trails featuring safe, family-friendly routes at achievable distances. Many forest trails are especially stunning in the fall when the leaves are ablaze with golds, oranges, and reds, and temperatures are perfect for an exerting hike. There is no better way to connect with loved ones during a family reunion than by unplugging and getting outside to enjoy meaningful moments together!
