Welcome to Estes Park, CO!

Most of the area surrounding Estes Park is part of Rocky Mountain National Park, a milieu laden with picturesque vistas and prospects for outdoor adventure in the Front Range region of Colorado. Just outside of Estes Park resides the Stanley Hotel, a lavish 1906 establishment that inspired Stephen King, one of the hotel's many guests, to write the novel The Shining. The city is easily accessible via several scenic highways, including Trail Ridge Road, the highest continuous highway in the United States, which runs from Estes Park westward through Rocky Mountain National Park to Grand Lake. One of Estes Park's most popular attractions is an aerial tramway tour to the 8,700-foot summit of Prospect Mountain, yielding panoramic views of Longs Peak, the ranges of the Continental Divide, Rocky Mountain National Park and Estes Park. While atop Prospect Mountain, visitors are invited to explore hiking trails, visit the deli, have a picnic and just relax and enjoy the scenery.
