Train Rides through to Rockies  (3 Answers)

I am going to visit my son and his family who live near Denver (Monument is the name of the town that he lives in). We want to take a day trip to the Rocky Mountains. We would really like to take a train ride through the Rockies. We will have three small children (ages 2 to 8) with us, so it has to be kid friendly. Does anyone know of a company that gives train tours through the Rockies? Like I said, this will be a day trip so I think I am looking for a train ride that lasts between 2 to 4 hours, but I am open to suggestions. If possible, please list the web address so that I can check it out.
Thanks so much!
Carie

Best Hikes and things to do.  (4 Answers)

Me and my husband will be spending 2 and a half days in RMNP during August and staying near Estes Park. I have been looking at things to do and wondered if anyone could help narrow down to the best things to do in the short time we have. We love hiking and being out in nature and have found the following things:

Drive on Trail Ridge and visit the Alpine Visitor Centre (considering this on the day we arrive from Casper)
I have seen trails for Bear Lake, and Nymph to Emerald Lake is this all on the same trail?
Alberta Falls Trail
Adams Falls Trail
Sky Pond Trail
Chasm Lake
Ghost Tour at Stanley Hotel

As we will not have time to do all of these any help or advice on what to pick over another would be great, we do plan to head off early to try and beat some of the crowds at this time of year.

September Adventure Activities for 18 & 20 year old kids & mom  (3 Answers)

Going to spend a week at a cabin in Estes Park on the river. Although I want to do a lot of hiking & taking photoes & viewing wildlife, my kids are at the age where they also want adventures. They are both very physically fit, outdoorsy & extremely adventurous. In or around Rocky Mtn Park/Estes Park do they offer activities such as off road adventures with ATVs, Jeeps or Rzrs? Maybe some zipline courses through the forest? Rafting? Any other exciting activities? Thanks

Best place to stay to visit the Rocky Mountain NP, CO?  (5 Answers)

Hi, just wondered if anyone had any advice please? Visiting the Rocky Mountain National Park in August and just wondered where the best place to stay would be? Boulder, Longmont, Estes Park or Loveland? We will be heading north after RMNP to Mount Rushmore, therefore wondering whether Loveland would be best as it would shorten our travel time north, whilst still being a gateway to RMNP city. Plus Boulder seems to be booked up :( Any advice would be greatly appreciated, thanks!

Best place to stay while visiting?  (2 Answers)

We are from the Gulf Coast and are planning a late May, early June trip to the Park. We're probably flying into Denver (have considered driving) I had thought Estes Park would be the best place to stay for around 4 days, but now that I've found this forum, I thought I'd ask. Is there a better place to stay? We're not looking for lots of "town" things like mini golf of such.

Thanks!
