Now more than ever, it is important for those who are still apprehensive about traveling to feel safe when they do. Towns like Estes Park offer plenty of ways to plan a secluded getaway that weary travelers can feel good about. With an abundance of outdoor activities, a smaller town size, and private accommodations, here’s how you can have a secluded getaway in Estes Park.

Explore Rocky Mountain National Park’s backcountry

Rocky Mountain National Park is home to over 400 trails, most of which are quite popular and can be crowded, especially in the summer. But there are also plenty of trails that guide you through the park’s backcountry, allowing for more of a secluded adventure.

There are multiple ways to hit the trails. In the summer, hiking is the best way to explore. In the winter, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing will allow you to access some of the park’s most remote areas.

More often than not, the reason most trails are popular is that they are easy to access. So, exploring RMNP’s backcountry trails can often be challenging and can require a bit more effort. So, do not attempt if you are new to hiking, snowshoeing, or cross-country skiing.

Take a drive

While Estes Park boasts many opportunities for exploring the beautiful Rocky Mountains on foot, there is no need to get out of your car to enjoy some of the most stunning destinations in Colorado. Fill up the gas tank, head out for the day and take a scenic drive near Estes Park. If you are traveling in the winter, be sure to check weather conditions as some of these roads may not be accessible due to snow and ice.

Rent an Estes Park cabin

One of the best ways to have a secluded getaway in Estes Park is renting a private cabin in town. Enjoy an authentic Rocky Mountain experience with a cozy cabin by the river, a cottage nestled on the mountainside, or a large vacation home you can rent for your family vacation. Either way, you will enjoy the peaceful atmosphere and seclusion a private rental brings.
