Estes Park is basecamp for Rocky Mountain National Park. The unique mountain town is NW of Denver, and around 1.5 hours drive away from Denver International Airport.

The town can be easily reached year round by highway 36 from the South and Denver International Airport, and highway 34 from the North. Trail Ridge Road makes for a breathtaking drive from the West – it usually stays open, weather permitting, until mid-October each year.

Colorado is an incredible place to enjoy the great outdoors, and hosts a wide variety of outdoor recreation possibilities for all ages. It is no wonder that Colorado has earned the accolade of the most physically active state in the nation.
