Estes Park
More than just a convenient resting place for travelers on their way to the national park encompassing the Front Range of the Rockies, Estes Park is a popular place to visit in its own right.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Sprague Lake and Cub Lake Trail. There's lots more to do: examine the collection at Red Rose Rock Shop & Dick's Rock Museum, take in the dramatic scenery at Alberta Falls, trek along Lily Mountain Trail, and contemplate the waterfront views at Lily Lake.

Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Estes Park trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.
