"Vacationland is done in a creative, visionary, and soulful way that only someone who loves this area could do. The book is beautifully constructed, thoughtful in its attention to both large and very small detail, and the best Guide Book/Visitors Guide I have ever seen on Estes Park!"
"We love your books! We pick them up each visit. They are all so beautiful and well done. They are the best guide books of any place we visit. We especially love the Restaurant Guide" Charles from Michigan
For a wonderful cruise around the lake, peddle the 3.75-mile loop that circles Lake Estes. Several parking lots and access points make it easy. This path links to the path that follows the river into downtown. It is paved and very popular, so ride slowly. Give pedestrians the right of way. Pedal Bikes are available at the Estes Park Marina.
The flooding in September has affected some of the best road-riding routes in the area. For the following year, riding on US Hwys 34 and 36 and Colorado Hwy 7 is not recommended for safety’s sake.
Still, road-riding in this area is amazing and challenging. The scenery will never bore you. The riding is good from early spring into the fall. Watch for traffic during the busy summer months. Go early; the weather can roll in rather fast. Always head out with extra clothing, plenty of water and food and your cell phone in case of emergencies.
