    Estes Park is a gateway to the Rockies

    The small town of Estes Park is perhaps best known as the base for exploring the Rocky Mountain National Park. During the summer, wildlife lovers and outdoorsy types descend to stay at the Estes Park vacation rentals and hike the hills in search of wild elk herds and solitary bears. Nestled in a valley surrounded by forested, and often snow covered, landscape, this charming little mountain town has plenty to discover when you return from a day on the trails. So, sold on a vacation to Estes Park? Warm people, wildlife encounters and the Rockies are all waiting for you.

    Few hiking trails measure up to Estes Park

    The Rocky Mountain National Park provides a playground for outdoor adventures. Whether you're coming for a couple getaway or bringing the family on an adventure vacation, the vast national park is ready to be explored by all. If you like to hike, there are few places as inspiring as the Rockies, a landscape of ragged granite peaks carpeted by conifers and punctuated by azure mountain lakes. Alternatively, you can saddle up your horse to trot along the equestrian routes or hop in your car and drive up Trail Ridge Road, the highest paved highway in the US.

    Estes Park ranches

    If you want a day off from the trails, there is plenty to do near your Estes Park vacation rental. Motoring aficionados shouldn't miss the Stanley Steam Car Museum, which houses a beautiful collection of century-old steam vehicles dating as far back as 1905. If you love all things equestrian, you can swing by Sombrero Ranch and be a cowboy or cowgirl for a day. Wearing the classic wide-brimmed hat is mandatory, or at least should be. You can complement it with a morning at the MacGregor Ranch Museum, a working farm dating back to the 1870s.

    Summer hikes and winter skiing in Estes Park

    If you're looking to explore the Rockies without the below-freezing temperatures, try to nab an Estes Park vacation rental between June and September when the snowmelts have all but disappeared and the trails become accessible once again. That said, if you like the idea of visiting a winter wonderland, the colder months see far fewer vacationers and you can hit the mountains with snowshoes or cross-country skis. There might be less wildlife to spot, but the landscape is arguably at its most scenic. The toasty log fires at your Estes Park vacation rental will await you on your return.

    Estes Park wildlife

    If you travel at the right time, it's unlikely that any day spent in the Rocky Mountain National Park won't result in spotting the odd critter or 2. Herds of mule deer are common, as are sightings of chipmunks. Visit at the right time and you can spot elk rutting during mating season, a wonderfully photogenic scene in the early morning mist. The eagle-eyed might spot bighorn sheep or coyotes on the mountain ridges, while hawks circle overhead in search of prey below. Those that like watching wildlife won't come away disappointed.
