Two Outdoor Things to do in Estes Park

The town of Estes Park sits in a mountain valley on the eastern side of the Continental Divide next door to Rocky Mountain National Park, but there are great outdoor adventures within the town itself. Here are just two things to do in Estes Park Colorado.

To experience nature as well as the shops, restaurants, and bars of the town, stroll the Riverwalk in Downtown Estes Park along the Big Thompson River and Fall Rivers that converge at George Hix Riverside Plaza. There are benches along the way, a garden, and even a play area for the kids. At the Estes Park Visitors Center, play an outdoor instrument and add your own harmony to the sounds of running water and bird call.

Take a countryside guided horseback trail ride with one of the stables located nearby or visit Estes Park Outfitters a little farther south of town. Not your typical nose-to-tail trail ride, here a guide accompanies you through rugged, unspoiled alpine scenery to the remote historic homestead meadows site. Explore the area where some of the first non-native settlers claimed their own little piece of heaven in the 1800s.

These two things to do in Estes Park Colorado provide a taste of the outdoor western life this lovely area has to offer.
