      Best Rocky Mountain National Park Trails

      Colorado Yesterday

      We will be staying in Estes Park for 2 nights in August. We would like to do some exploring and hiking in Rocky Mountain National Park and do not want to waste time.

      Does anyone recommend any must do hiking trails?

      Rocky Mountain National Park / Estes Park

      Colorado May 30, 2015 at 11:44 AM

      Hello fellow traveler! We will be traveling to Colorado during the 2nd week of August for our first time. We will be renting a cabin for only 2 night in  Estes Park.

      1) Are there any recommendation of specific lodges to rent for the 2 nights? There will be 4 of us, not looking for anything too fancy or expensive because we would like to maximize our time outdoors.

      2) Is there anything specific you would recommend as a "must do" while in Estes Park and National Mountain Rocky Park?

      Any other recommendations would be greatly appreciated!

      Trying to plan the ultimate 30th for my husband - Traveling to Denver

      Denver May 11, 2015 at 9:45 AM

      Hi everyone,

      I am from Ottawa, Canada, and I am planning a surprise trip to Denver CO for my husbands 30th. He is a MASSIVE Die-Hard Broncos Fan and it has always been his dream to see a Broncos home game in Denver.

      I am purchasing tickets for the Oct 4th game so we will be in Denver that week. (I am also looking for suggestions on where the best seats are in the stadium... I don't want to mess this up and I'm sure some are better than others - trying to keep it around $300-$400 a ticket)

      Other than the Tailgate party, stadium tour and of course.. the GAME!! I am looking for some fun ideas for the remainder of our trip.

      I want this trip to be all about him and his favorite things.
      Other than LOVING anything to do with football, he is into vintage muscle cars, scotch/whiskey, cigars and of course a good steak. All things I would like to treat him to while we are there.

      I of course also want to explore the beauty of Denver, and really just looking for fun things to do and places to see!
      Any and all suggestions are very appreciated.
      Thank you all so much! :)

      We have one day for a day hike. We will definitely go to the Bear Lake area. Both the Black Lake trail and the Loch trail look great. Is one more spectacular than the other? I know that the Black Lake trail is a bit longer than the Loch trail. Thanks!

      Re: Estes Park trip first week of February

      by santanesia Online Now Jan 25, 2009 at 1:35 PM

      We leave in eight days to spend the first week of February ('09) at the World Mark timeshare in Estes Park. We know other parts of Colorado pretty well but not the northeast really at all. Can anyone tell us if Boulder and Laramie are good day trips? Also, how is the downhill skiing up that way? We'd probably only ski one or two days at most and might opt to skip it altogether if it's not good. Does anybody know if that Wed. snowshoe trip out of Estes Park is a good adventure? And is there any worthwhile hiking this time of year? I know, lots of questions but any answers would be a great help.

      What is the weather like in June?

      by bevjerry Online Now Jun 29, 2008 at 11:19 AM

      Can anyone tell me what the typical weather is in mid to late June in Estes Park? We're thinking of going there for our 50th anniversary and staying at the Stanley Hotel. We are not fans of 90 degree weather so if it's in that range we'll think about another location. We were considering Yosemite until we looked at this past week's temperatures.

      Horseback riding?

      by greencargirl Online Now May 14, 2008 at 10:57 AM

      Our family will go to Estes Park for the first time in mid-July. We'll stay at the YMCA-of-the-rockies there, and our two kids are excited to try horseback riding. YMCA contracts with a company, or I noticed there are several other horseback riding places in and around Estes Park. Has anyone used any of them, and were they good? Which one?

      We'll be in Estes next summer for the 4th and we'd like to drive up the Old Fall River Road. I'm looking for advice from someone who's been on it. Is it rough enough that we should have 4-wheel drive?
