Biking

Exciting Things To Do in Estes Park

Estes Park biking has become a popular activity among the many travelers who wish to experience the Rockies in a unique way. Pedal through spectacular pine-filled forests, immense open grassland, and intense rocky hills.

With choices ranging from rocky terrain, to more gentler paths, Estes Park has a trail for every type of biker.

To start, the 3.5-mile Lake Estes Bike Loop offers a beautiful view of the surrounding mountains and trees while providing pristine opportunities to gaze at the lake from all angles. This path is good for riders of all ages and, for those without bikes, is available for walking as well.

For a more challenging ride, the Rocky Mountain National Park allows bikes on their paved roads and, in winter months, leaves some open only to bikers.

One is the Trail Ridge Road, which climbs 3,700 feet into the mountain air on a four to six-hour trip. Less arduous selections include the Horseshoe Park Loop at one to three hours and the Bear Lake Road at two to four hours.

An early start on these rides can help avoid traffic and afternoon thunderstorms. All feature incredible views of mountains, trees and other natural scenery.

The Trail Ridge Road, which is the highest continually paved road in the United States, can also be found in Rocky Mountain National Park. As it leads from Estes Park it passes through forests, the tree line, tundra and the continental divide before leading down to Grand Lake.

A good stopping point is the Alpine Visitor Center , at the high point of the road, where elk and bighorn sheep can sometimes be spotted from the deck!
