grand lake or just estes park for Rocky Mt National Park visit?

Jump to last reply

Our family of 4, with kids aged 1 and 4, will have 8 full days in the area, including 4 days that we have to spend in estes park for my husband's conference.We plan to spend the first 3 days in boulder visiting friends and acclimatizing the kids, since we live at sea level. From there, do you recommend 6 days based in estes, or 2 in grand lake and 4 in estes, or another option? We are into nature and hiking, though the hikes will all be easy hikes that a 4 year old can do.

We will do the drive through the park one day, and an advantage to only staying in estes is that we can choose which day based on weather.

We will be there in late September.

Thanks for your advice!
