Estes Park, Colorado is known as the basecamp to Rocky Mountain National Park. While many people tend to head straight to the Rockies for holiday, there is plenty to see and do at Estes Park.
Kent Mountain Adventure Center's Via Ferrata
New in 2019, KMAC's via ferrata allows for a different rock climbing experience. Good for novices looking for a way to get up the rock face with more security to seasoned climbers looking for a fun change of pace. Views across the Estes Valley into Rocky Mountain National Park are spectacular from here as well.
Hermit Park Open Space
Hermit Park offers visitors a wide-range of outdoor recreation opportunities including, mountain biking, horseback riding, camping, trail running and picnics. Views from Hermit Park across the Estes Valley into Rocky Mountain National Park are spectacular. This area is less-known and so attracts fewer visitors than nearby Rocky Mountain National Park.
Lake Estes is walking distance from downtown Estes Park. It is encircled by a 3.5 mile paved path that is great for walking, jogging, bicycling or simply finding a park bench and taking in the views. Lake Estes Marina rents stand up paddle boards, kayaks, canoes and pontoon boats.
