Estes Park and Streamside on Fall River Flood Info

  • 11/20/13 No matter what your preferred route of travel is to Estes Park, it's open! The repairs have been made to Highway 34 (Big Thompson Canyon) and it opens tomorrow for residents and visitors alike. If you are arriving from Ft. Collins, Loveland, Greeley, Cheyenne etc., your travel time will be reduced.
  • 11/4/13 Highway 36 from Lyons reopened for traffic today. For many, this has been a favorite route into Estes Park for years. The road is said to be two lanes, though you should anticipate occasional stops as work is still being done on it in a few sections.
  • 10/9/13 Each day Estes Park continues the flood recovery process. Our residents and guests are enjoying our fall weather. The fall colors are beautiful and can be enjoyed on the Peak to Peak Route. The downtown area has revitalized, we are seeing more visitors returning each day to view the colors, shop, hike, enjoy the wildlife, dine out and enjoy everything Estes Park has to offer. Hwy 119 out of Boulder has reopened and guests along the Front Range now have a second route to bring them to Estes Park safely and it is a bit quicker than taking the interstate. Check out our directions page for more information.

  • 10/5/13 For our guests that are visiting and would like to do some hiking and sightseeing. We have developed a list of hiking suggestions that avoid Rocky Mountain National Park, which is closed due to our government shutdown. The national forests are open and available and we can assist you with easy to difficult hikes, based on your preferences. The elk are out and about in Estes Park, particularly at both golf courses and you can definitely still enjoy the rut. Fall color on Hwy 7 and 72 is in full swing with wonderful views and stands of aspen showing with spectacular color. Come on up for the show!

  • 9/27/13 Rocky Mountain National Park announced today that 93% of the park is open to the public for recreational use! Gates have opened for Bear Lake Rd., Upper Beaver Meadows, Lumpy Ridge and Longs Peak Road. Many areas of the Wild Basin have also reopened. Fees at the entrance gates will not be charged through this weekend. Elk Fest starts tomorrow so come on up for a great weekend!

  • 9/25/13 Rocky Mountain National Park staff has been out daily working on the trails and assessing them for the safety of both guests and residents that enjoy the park. Three hiking/walking trails and additional areas on the East side that were impacted by the flood are reopening for public use. Hidden Valley has reopened for hiking, picnics and recreational use. The Lily Lake Trail is open for use, though the south end is still under some reconstruction. The Lily Ridge Trail which connects with the Lily Lake Trail is also open. Deer Mountain Trail has also opened with access through the popular Deer Mountain Trailhead. Trail Ridge Road, the highest continuous highway in the United States, is also open as weather permits (which is typical for this time of year). You can enjoy our scenic drives and many pull off areas are open for spectacular viewing of our fall foliage and the gorgeous panoramic mountain views our visitors love.

  • 9/24/13 We are all still working hard in Estes Park to make sure things are beautiful and fun when our guests come to visit. The downtown area is active with businesses opening up as quickly as possible. Many shops and the majority of our restaurants are now open and serving our guests. The rangers are still updating us on trails on the East side of the National Park and we hope to have more details for you later this week. Elk Fest will be starting on Saturday and we are all gearing up to celebrate the Fall Rut. Herds are being seen at both golf courses every day.

  • 9/21/13 Rocky Mountain National Park has had rangers hiking and assessing all trails in their system to assure they are ready for our guests. To date, the West side of the park near Grand Lake is open with all trail systems ready. The East side here has opened hiking at Alpine Ridge Trail, Tundra Communities Trail, Alpine View Trail and Hidden Valley Accessible Trail. We expect additional trails to continue opening over the next 2-3 days. These trails are all accessible from Trail Ridge Rd., which is open. Plus, for our guests that prefer a walk to a hike, the Lake Estes Trail is 3.7 miles long and circles around Lake Estes for a wonderful walk.

  • 9/20/13 Guests have been arriving to Estes Park on Hwy 7 for a few days now. They've all mentioned different stops on the way that they've discovered. One party stopped at Blackhawk/Central City to enjoy a little time at the slot machines. Another spent part of their day shopping in Nederland. A third said they'd never been to Allenspark before so one the last bit of their trip, stopped for lunch and a little shopping before the descent into Estes Park. It's their third stay with us and they were so happy they found another fun area to further explore when they visit again. See the map below to assist you with your routing to Estes Park

  • 9/18/13 It's official, Estes Park is open to our guests! Trail Ridge Rd. is now open to all in Rocky Mountain National Park. Hiking trails are being opened as they dry out and the rangers approve them. Estes Park is accessible from Highway 7 and through the National Park so we have two routes open for you to arrive. For those with reservations already scheduled, just give us a call and we will email you a map to assist you with your routing. Our temporary phone number of 970-232-8430 is still in use. We look forward to seeing you soon.

  • 9/17/13 Great News! It is likely that Hwy 7 will be open as of tomorrow for travel access for our guests, as well as local residents. Town, County and State officials have been working hard, with the help of the Colorado National Guard to make sure travel is safe for all. Official word will hopefully be available tomorrow morning! We are open and ready to confirm your reservations at 970-232-8430. We will be happy to supply a map to our guests to assure the shortest drive time to Streamside on Fall River.

  • 9/15/13 Streamside on Fall River is open and currently has guests staying with us. We are cleaning up debris on the river banks from the flood waters, but were otherwise spared from the destruction you may have seen on national news channels. Travel is very limited on the highway leading into Estes Park, please call us at 970-232-8430 if you have reservations prior to September 27th and we will give you an update on highway access.
