The beauty of Estes Park is breathtaking, let's explore the many outdoor opportunities available in these Rocky Mountains.
Living in Estes Park, I find myself getting out more and more to enjoy the different hobbies there are. You may be wondering what you can do here for fun and adventure in the different seasons. Here are a few of the favorites my friends and I have been enjoying.
My latest obsession has definitely been fly fishing, by far. Estes Park has a terrific fly fishing experience with many gorgeous spots in and out of Rocky Mountain National Park.
There are a bunch of rivers and lakes depending on your preference and many are regularly stocked to keep the populations thriving.
Yet another fun activity, snowshoeing has been terrific fun, is stunningly beautiful with the snow covered pine trees and other evergreens. It is a terrific workout, and when you dress accordingly it is refreshing, invigorating and you will often have a great time seeing the wildlife all at the same time. They can be easier to see with less foliage and a white background.
Another winter activity that gets overlooked, cross country skiing will give you a similar experience to snowshoeing. You can also cover more ground and have some fun zipping downhill in many areas.
It is a common local hobby and one that many enjoy immensely.
Ever since I was a young boy, camping has been a part of my life. It was always a chance to get away from the gadgets, TV and such and escape to a world of nature, campfires and a simpler life. I still enjoy it to this day and there are many forms to enjoy.
I recently popped over to a nearby campground in RMNP for a night and I have to say I enjoyed it thoroughly. All just 15 minutes from my home is Estes Park, nice!
An activities page for Estes Park would not be complete without hiking. Snow-capped views of the continental divide, trees for miles, rivers of beauty, we have it all.
There are times when a miniature hike is all you are looking for, or times when a 10 mile trek to remote locations is on call, there is both as well as everything in between.
Go to the alpine visitor center and past to Grand Lake to spot moose. climb up to Lawn Lake and Crystal Lakes for grand valley displays of nature at it's best. You can choose whatever you prefer and be immersed in the wild of The Rockies.
