Visit Rocky Mountain National Park

Just a Short Drive from The Estes Park Resort

Named by TripAdvisor as the #1 outdoor and adventure destination in the U.S., Rocky Mountain National Park is a beacon for leisure travelers countrywide. Offering an array of habitats and ecosystems laced with over 300 miles of trails, this northern Colorado park is open year round to hiking, biking, snowshoeing, wildlife watching and other activities.

Bighorn sheep, marmot, coyote and elk all call this park home, roaming over its 416 square miles of wilderness. Sixty peaks top 12,000 feet in elevation, with Longs Peak - at 14,259 feet - being the highest peak visible from The Estes Park Resort. Guests can get a park pass and spend the duration of their stay exploring the snowcapped peaks, fields of fragile alpine flowers, glacier-fed lakes and impressive pine forests. Guests with time constraints can spend half a day driving up Trail Ridge Road, winding above the tree line for stunning views of the park.

Whether you want to explore every inch or appreciate the scenery from a distance, The Estes Park Resort is the ideal choice for Rocky Mountain lodging.
