Wildlife Watching | Elk
You'll see wildlife everywhere you look in Estes Park, and especially during Fall & Winter! These elk were resting in their summer pasture right next to Trail Ridge Road!
Wildlife watching in Estes doesn't entail a trip into the backcountry — view Elk and Bighorn Sheep as you drive through town! The golf course is a favorite spot for a grass snack.
During the Fall Elk Rut majestic bull elk challenge each other for breeding rights to the females. Their bugling call echoes across meadows - it's a haunting and primeval sound.
Leave the fast lane, cross our covered bridge to simple serenity in a cozy cottage, suite or vacation home in towering pines along Fall River. Bask in hot tub bubbles. Warm to the scent and sizzle of a wood-burning fireplace. Fall asleep to the river's lullaby. Roam 30 acres adjoining Rocky Mountain National Park. Enjoy the serendipity of wandering wildlife and friendly gatherings in our library. Castle Mountain Lodge on Fall River Details
