The Gateway to the Park
Estes Park is commonly known as the gateway to Rocky Mountain National Park, and it’s little wonder why. Just outside your front door you’ll find a wide variety of outdoor activities regardless of the season, plenty of which are accessible to outdoorsmen of all skill levels. You’ll find beginner-level trails that make for a scenic, Zen nature walks, and if you make a short trip out you can also find trails to challenge even the most avid of hikers.
All of this is made even better by the fact that the park is accessible during all seasons, so you won’t have to worry about not getting your fill of the outdoors just because the snow is coming down. In fact, there are unique sights that can only be seen here during the winter, with snowcapped trees and frozen lakes just along the trails. No need to worry about the cold being too much, either, as your Rocky Mountain National Park rental homes will be heated up and ready for your return.
In the summer, you can traverse enchanting forest trails, kayak on shimmering mountain lakes, and mountain bike through the park. During the spring and summer, you can always embark on a horseback ride with a local company or take the Estes Park Aerial Tramway to the summit of Prospect Mountain. When you come to visit for the fall, you can take in scenic vistas with pops of color as the leaves change amongst the evergreens. No matter the season, the Rockies have something wonderful in store for you!
