Downtown Estes Park begins at the intersection of U.S. Highway 34which brought travelers westward through the Big Thompson Canyon from Lovelandand U.S. Highway 36, which winds northwest from Denver through Boulder into Estes. Both highways continue through town into Rocky Mountain National Park.
Highway 34 continues over the Continental Divide as Trail Ridge Road, a National Scenic Byway and the highest, continuous paved highway in the U.S. It reaches elevations of more than 12,000 feet and is normally open from late May into early October.
Colorado State Highway 7, also known as the Peak to Peak Highway, starts in Estes Park and works its way south through magnificent scenic areas.
While there are no airports, bus terminals or train stations in Estes Park, shuttle services ferry passengers to and from Denver International Airport (DIA) four to seven times each day. Local transportation services provide transportation to and from the airport, other locations in the Denver metro area and around town.
Driving times are approximately 90 minutes to downtown Denver and another 15 to 30 minutes to DIA. Estes Park is within an hours drive of the Front Range cities of Boulder, Longmont, Fort Collins, Loveland and Greeley and about two and a half hours from Colorado Springs.
