Biking in Estes Park is a fine way to explore our gateway to the great outdoors. With routes in town, roads that lead into Rocky Mountain Park and further opportunities in the surrounding area, riders of all skill levels can enjoy a day of cycling during a stay here!
Depending on when you visit, consider a ride on Old Fall River or Trail Ridge, two roads that open to bikes only in early April. While they lead straight up the Continental Divide, the spectacular views (and downhill cruise!) are well worth the effort. Bikers seeking an off-road challenge should check out Roosevelt National Park to our east: here you can find a variety of mountain biking trails that surpass what Rocky Mountain National Park allows riders access to.
In town, routes like the Devil's Gulch loop and the Lake Estes bike path are perfect options for those seeking an easier outing. The latter also brings you by the Estes Park Mountain Shop, an excellent resource for biking rentals, gear and repairs. If you're looking to plan a larger-scale trip, we recommend consulting their biking guide or on-site experts for detailed, current information.
For ease and convenience, it's hard to beat the equipment and guidance of New Venture Cycling or a different Estes Park biking company. Common trips include a descent down Old Fall River Road or wildlife tours through other parts of the –true highlights among the many outdoor activities our town has to offer.
