Estes Park Traffic

Jump to last reply

We are just back from my wife's family reunion, which was in Estes Park.

We flew to Denver and rented a car. The normal route included a leg from Lyon to Estes Park on Route 36. There was a lot of construction with multiple hold-ups, and we arrived four hours late (we didn't miss the reunion because we were going a few days early)

When it came time to leave, we turned in our keys and asked if the construction was still a problem. The lady said yes, and most locals were using Colorado 7 to Boulder. I had read that in other places, but hadn't been able to convince my GPS to find that route, and the maps I had didn't show how to get onto Colorado 7. She said take Mary's Lake Road south until you come to a stop sign. Turn right and you are on Colorado 7. Right seemed the wrong way, but it was correct, as Colorado 7 is a very windy road. That route was the most scenic of any we saw in a week.

Estes Park itself is a bit touristy for my taste, but my son and his daughters, 8 and 12, really appeared to enjoy it, especially their first horse ride.
