Women of Rocky History Tour

Focusing on local legend, Isabella Bird, this scenic bus tour will take participants on a historical adventure throughout the Estes Valley.

Join Rocky Mountain Conservancy on a unique educational experience by bus! You will venture throughout the Estes Valley and Rocky Mountain National Park to walk in the footsteps of magnificent women who homesteaded and visited the area. This program will include the stories and impacts of European homesteading women including Isabella Bird, Anna Wolfrom Dove, Esther Burnell, Bettie Willard, and others.

This program is offered for a limited time in celebration of Isabella Bird's arrival to the Estes Valley. Isabella Bird was one of the first women to summit Longs Peak and is well known for writing the book, "A Lady's Life in the Rocky Mountains."

Thanks to a generous sponsorship from Visit Estes Park, each participant over the age of 12 is offered the book "The Magnificent Mountain Woman: Adventures in the Colorado Rockies" written by Jan Robertson, to accompany their learning.
