Estes Park Hiking

Hiking is one of the greatest outdoor activities because people of all ages and abilities can enjoy it together – it’s like walking, with a view!

Because there are lots of amazing wildlife, spectacular views, pure mountain air, and sparkling alpine lakes, hiking in the Colorado Rockies is some of the best in the U.S

Even more, Rocky Mountain National Park has over 350 miles of great trails!

There are trails for everyone from an handicap accessible trail around a beautiful lake, to a strenuous trail topping out over 12,000 ft!

In fact, whatever your adventure level is, you’ll love exploring in these mountains.  Their scale is grand, and their alpine tundra unmatched.

Here are some ideas to get you started.
