The Estes Park Riverwalk starts at the Visitor Center and goes beside the Big Thompson & Fall Rivers.  These two mountain rivers come out of Rocky Mountain National Park and join in the middle of downtown Estes Park.  The Riverwalk winds through plazas and downtown Estes Park shops and restaurants.

Wander beside the river, through park- like plazas with benches to sit on, with the sounds of the river nearby.  Look for the bronze animal sculptures, and rock water features.

Cross bridges, enjoy a bite to eat at one of the restaurants with outside tables.  Pop into one of the many shops that line the Riverwalk.


Stop for a coffee at local’s two favorite spots along the Riverwalk— Kind Coffee & Inkwell and Brew.

On a summertime afternoon, listen to live music at the George Hix Riverside Plaza.

For some fun on a summer Sunday, Monday, or Tuesday evening at 7pm head over to Bond Park for a cowboy singalong with Cowboy Brad Fitch, a local musician specializing in cowboy and John Denver songs.
