TOP 5 WAYS TO CELEBRATE ROCKY MOUNTAIN NATIONAL PARK'S CENTENNIAL IN ESTES PARK
1. Enjoy Snowy Spring Adventure in the Rocky Mountains
It's considered a favorite season by many visitors, because as soft snow blankets the valley, the views become even more dramatic and the backcountry even more delightful with mild spring temperatures! There is plenty of outdoor fun to explore by snowshoe or backcountry ski on the snowy trails in Rocky Mountain National Park. Attend a Centennial Saturday Evening Seminar at the Beaver Meadows Visitor Center throughout the winter and spring. Plan a getaway during a spring event in Estes Park, a perfect complement to a weekend of play in Rocky Mountain National Park. Enjoy village atmosphere by dining fireside or shopping in the downtown stores and boutiques where you can pick up a variety of Rocky Mountain National Park centennial gifts for loved ones.
2. Attend a Celebration Event
The village of Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park are celebrating all year long with special events including commemorative ceremonies, wildlife celebrations, beer & wine festivals, holiday events, cultural festivals, and many more!
3. Learn Something New
Attend a Rocky Mountain National Park ranger-led program where you walk side by side with a park ranger while learning all about the environment around you. Take an educational class with the Rocky Mountain Conservancy, take an avalanche course to prepare for pristine backcountry skiing or try a rock climbing lesson on some of Estes Park's world class granite walls and boulders.
4. Bring the Family
Everyone in the family can celebrate Rocky Mountain National Park's centennial, kiddos can become a Jr. Ranger, take fun educational classes and explore the kids and family activities in the village, ranging from mild to wild!
5. Hit the Trail
Whether it is on foot, horseback or x-country skis, there are over 300 miles of trails to explore in Rocky Mountain National Park alone! Find more and trek with your pooch or explore on mountain bike in the national forest.
