2017-2018 Estes Park Official Visitors Guide - 19

ADVENTURE SCALE:
MILD

MODERATE

WILD

SLEDDING
Bring your own sled or tube to swoosh down the gentle slopes of Hidden Valley, a former ski area,
inside the national park. It's a great family outing, particularly with kids and kids-at-heart who
don't mind taking a break to make a snow angel or build a snowman. If you don't have a slick ride,
no problem. You can rent sleds or tubes for a nominal fee from vendors in town.
LAKE LIFE
Rent a stand up paddleboard (SUP) from the
Lake Estes Marina for an incredible core workout. Up the challenge by practicing SUP yoga.

Explore all that Lake Estes offers. Rent a pedal
boat or wade into the cool waters. Cruise the
path on a hired surrey pedal cart or cruiser bike.

FLY FISHING (fishing license required)
Fly fish or spin cast Fall River or
the Big Thompson from spots
right downtown. Local gear
shops rent equipment.

Hike with a guide or on your
own to alpine fish at The Loch,
Dream Lake or Ouzel Lake in
the national park.

On longer guided trips, serious
anglers can backpack, ride a
horse or use a pack llama to fish
remote waters.

Brought your own horse? Enjoy
designated horse-friendly
paths inside Roosevelt National
Forest and the national park.

Experience camping like
Estes Park's early visitors when
you pack into tucked-away
camping spots via horseback.

Soak in 360-degree views
from Kruger Rock in Hermit
Park, or feel the spray of
Calypso Cascades in the
national park.

Get your blood pumping on
the Lumpy Ridge Loop that
winds around the granite
outcropping and offers views
of Longs Peak.

HORSEBACK RIDING
Saddle up for easy one- to
two-hour rides that meander
through green meadows and
climb to mountain overlooks.
HIKING
Enjoy the wildflowers and
views on easy, flat walks at
Centennial Open Space at the
Knoll-Willows or around Lake
Estes or Bear Lake.
ROAD BIKING
Avid road cyclists appreciate the scenic ride
along Dry Gulch and Devils Gulch roads, but
even amateur riders like careening down Trail
Ridge Road on a guided bike ride.

Not for the weak-hearted, the mighty ascent
of Trail Ridge Road challenges hard-core cyclists
seeking thrilling twists, turns and gorgeous,
natural eye-candy.

ALPINE OR BACKCOUNTRY SKIING
Strap on your touring skis and do some backcountry turns at Hidden Valley, a former ski
resort in the national park.

A one-hour drive brings you to Eldora Mountain
Resort for traditional downhill skiing. Lift passes
and gear rentals are available in Estes Park.

RAFTING
Get wet and laugh on a half-day float (morning or
afternoon) down the Poudre River! Experienced
guides help navigate Class II to IV rapids.

Take a full day to tackle rapids on the Poudre River
with a guide, or pair a guided drive through the
national park with a trip down the Colorado River.

OFF-ROADING & DIRT BIKING
Rent a jeep, an ATV or dirt bike, or bring your
own, for thrills on Pole Hill or at Pierson Park,
Johnny Park, IMI or Valley Dirt Riders Track.

Leave the driving to someone else but enjoy all
the fun of four-wheel-drive trails on a guided
trip into Roosevelt National Forest.
