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.
