Kayakers can enjoy the kayak run right in the heart of Estes Park alongside the Riverwalk! Whether it's your first time paddling, or you are an experienced paddler who would like to refresh your skills visit one of our local outfitters to schedule a lesson. You will find fairly easy moving water here, but no matter what your skill level, this outdoor experience will be a unique one!
Another option would be to rent a kayak from the Estes Park Marina and go out for a paddle.
After an afternoon of play in the water, you can spread a quilt on the ground and enjoy a picnic beside the informal, outdoor amphitheater adjacent to the start point for this run. The shell backs up to a beautiful, steep rock face and is surrounded by evergreens. Schedule your visit to coincide with one of the summer outdoor concerts (featuring all types of music) scheduled for the Performance Park Pavilion. What's Happening This Week?
