Outdoor Sports in Estes Park
Estes Park is home to a variety of outdoor sports and adventures that are perfect for a guys’ getaway. Hiking and mountain biking are both popular on the wide variety of trails that are found in Estes Park. If you really want a story to take home, consider climbing a 14er – one of Colorado’s 14,000-foot peaks. Longs Peak is located in Rocky Mountain National Park and offers a challenging summit for those with some climbing experience. If you’d rather take on something a little less daunting, consider cutting the hike short and stopping at Chasm Lake, which provides epic views of alpine terrain, mountain peaks, and the side of Longs Peak that extends 2,400 feet above the lake. During winter months, downhill skiing, cross-country skiing, and snowshoeing are all easily accessible from Estes Park.
Estes Park Breweries
Estes Park is home to a handful of breweries that are perfect for relaxing over a cold one with the guys. Consider a stop at Estes Park Brewery, Lumpy Ridge Brewing Company, or Rock Cut Brewing Company to enjoy some of Estes Park’s local brews. Lumpy Ridge Brewing Company offers a unique aspect in that it is a former gas station converted into a brewery. Their outdoor seating area offers nice views of the surrounding Rockies. Estes Park Brewery also offers a nice patio area for enjoying their brews – consider ordering the raspberry wheat, a local favorite! Bring your own food to be enjoyed at Rock Cut Brewing Company, or order something from one of the food trucks often parked on their patio.
