Things To Do In Estes Park

Your Estes Park vacation will be full of Colorado outdoor activities. A scenic drive into  Rocky Mountain National Park will offer many hiking adventures.The north entrance (Fall River Visitor Center) is a 10 minute drive, while the south entrance (Beaver Meadows Visitor Center) is a 20 minute drive from this Estes Park lodging facility.

Family activities are abundant in the Estes Valley. You will find horseback riding through the mountains; mountain biking around Lake Estes; fishing in a river or lake; campfire sing-alongs; evening concerts or even mountain climbing in a controlled climate.

In the heart of Estes Park are local merchants proudly displaying treasures for you to view at the wide range of shops, galleries and boutiques.

Estes Park events and festivals are hosted throughout the year. With many events to choose from, you can enjoy Rocky Mountain vacations throughout the year.

Which season is best?  They all are!  Estes Park has many functions planned for the summer, which brings families to enjoy a rowdy time at the five time award winning PRCA Rooftop Rodeo and several museums sharing in our rich history of the Estes Valley.

Fall is priceless…with the golden aspens blowing in the wind during one of the largest Scottish-Irish Festivals in the country and the distant elk bugle.

Winter is quiet and perfect for that weekend getaway with a romantic dinner for two.

Spring comes slowly to the mountains, with an occasional snowfall to continue your winter sports of cross country skiing and snowshoeing.  Later spring brings the high snow melts for a fabulous whitewater rafting trip.

After enjoying these events, activities or guided tours you can come back to your condo rental in Estes Park at the Black Canyon Inn. You can sit at our seasonal outdoor heated pool and soak in the magnificent views of Longs Peak.
