You’ve probably checked out the billions of T-shirts in downtown Estes Park (An *heart emoji* Estes Park is the most popular style), driven Trail Ridge Road to view the wildlife, including Elk and Texans (just kidding, we love our Texans, too!), and maybe even hiked up to Alberta Falls. But if you’re looking for a real adventure when it comes to things to do in Estes Park this weekend, you may want to consider seeing the gorgeous Rocky Mountains from an ATV.
Estes Park ATV Rentals lets you see nature in a way you’ve never experienced it before, from a vehicle that makes you feel as if you’re on an amusement park ride, only you’re the one behind the wheel. It’s not a ride that you’ll toss your cookies on, however, unless it’s a couple of Oreos from your packed lunch. You may be in for the ride of your life.
What’s an ATV? Well, it’s an All-Terrain Vehicle, and that’s an appropriate name, given that the durable and safe Jeep-like car will handle anything the Roosevelt National Forest can toss your way. It’s a comfortable, fun and, if you want, wild ride that reminds us of a golf cart– if it could lift weights and drink a kale smoothie every day.
And yet, the experienced guides at Estes Park ATV will put you at ease from the moment you meet them in the mountains before the start of your journey.
This journey is more like a Choose-Your-Own-Adventure, as Estes Park ATV provides you nine different trails to choose from covering 27 miles of mountains. It doesn’t matter if you’re a beginner, someone who wants an adventure (but nothing too crazy) or you’re a hardcore driver looking for a serious challenge, you’ll see many beautiful sights along the way.
Things to SEE in Estes Park this weekend
There are, of course, unmatched views of Mount Meeker and Longs Peak, the king of the many peaks in Rocky Mountain National Park. Longs is the tallest in the park, at 14,259 feet, and its diamond east face attracts climbers from around the world for its striking, beautiful and breathtaking (literally) features.
Another highlight is a jet plane crash from 1965. You’ll be able to see the jet’s remains up close, in addition to the engine that scattered a few hundred feet from the impact. The crash happened more than 50 years ago, and yet the crash is so well-preserved that it seems like it occurred last month.
You’ll also get views of aspen meadows, making it a perfect fall color tour, with a short walk that leads you to a pond that doubles as a home for moose, giving you a good chance to see one of Colorado’s most awesome creatures.
When you’re looking for things to do in Estes Park this weekend, you won’t be disappointed in the sights you’ll get from an ATV tour.
If driving an ATV capable of handling the roughest terrain seems intimidating, it shouldn’t be. It’s an easy and safe vehicle to drive, with 4WD and safety features including harness seat belts. Small kids have been known to take a nap in the back during the day-long journey. Estes Park ATV has experienced guides to show you how to handle the vehicle like a pro, and easy-to-read maps showing you where to go on trails built for the newest beginners.
But if you want a challenge, there are some expert-level trails as well, with extreme terrain and exciting drops that still challenge the guides. If you want to white-knuckle your way across the Rockies, Estes Park ATV Rentals can help you get there.
