Estes Park


Estes Park Impressions

Besides of hiking you can enjoy a lot of winter activities like snow shoeing, cross country skiing (there are no lifts in Estes Park), ice skating, sledding, and sleigh rides. For downhill skiing you have to take a 1 hour drive to the Eldora Ski area.

Official trails allowed for snowmobiles can be found in some areas on the Western Slope, but better call the National Park for detailed information: 970-586-1206. Arapahoe and Roosevelt National Forests have some trails, too, call them atl 303-498-2770.

The town itself, situated in a scenic valley, offers many nice restaurants and shops - when we visited we especially liked the many candy stores, where you can actually watch, how all the sweet stuff is made.

Outdoor seating in some restaurants is very pleasant during summertime, when it's moderately warm but not as hot as elsewhere in Eastern Colorado, like Boulder or Denver.
