One of the main reasons we are passionate about our time in the Rocky Mountains is because its difficult to spend quality family time during our busy work week. Estes Park is the perfect place to cut back on our screen time and really enjoy the outdoors as a family. When we are in the mountains we spend hours each day hiking and wild-life spotting.
We’ve organized our favorite hikes by distance with three categories; under 2 miles, 2-4 miles and beyond 4 miles. You won’t find really long and challenging hikes on this site because we are writing with young families in mind, but there are several hikes on our wish-list that we hope to do again when our kids get bigger or when we have a babysitter!
Before visiting high elevation, please talk to your doctor about any questions or concerns you have for yourself and your kiddos. It’s your responsibility to be safe.
