Beautiful Hike

Our family loved it! Just minutes from Estes, easy entry, meadows with wild flowers, pine and aspen, and several overlooks along the way. 360 degree views from the summit. WOW... read more

Our family loved it! Just minutes from Estes, easy entry, meadows with wild flowers, pine and aspen, and several overlooks along the way. 360 degree views from the summit. WOW! It was an incline but not too much. There was also a pavilion neat the parking area that is great for a picnic or a family reunion. We will certainly... More

This one is a hidden gem! Solid incline but worth every step. View from the top is awesome! You HAVE to get to top of the rock formation to really appreciate it.

I go here frequently as a local. It is close to town and a good option for a shortish hike. and if you don't feel like going into the park. You get a lot of bang for the buck here: good trail, nice flowers and just a spectacular view from the summit. Plus not that many people. there is a... More

Just outside of Estes Park there is a trail for a hike up to Kruger Rock. We have hiked up there because the name of the rock is so close to our name. It's a great hike, fairly easy and not too long. The most difficult part is at the end where you have it's a bit steep and you... More

It's a short hike from the trailhead in Hermit Park, which is 3 miles east of Estes Park. You drive up about 2.5 miles, park in a parking lot to the east of the restroom buildings, and hike starting west up the trail, which is marked. It's only a 4 mile round trip, so won't exhaust reasonably fit flatlanders. Dogs... More

Kruger Rock is a very beautiful moderate hike with a steep ascent. It has fantastic views of Estes Park below once you reach the Summit. The best part is that it is dog friendly. We bring our dog to Estes every year and it is a popular hike for people with pets. There are not many dog friendly hikes since... More

This is a moderately challenging hike with tremendous views. The trailhead is in Hermit Park Open Area. Admission to the park is $6 for a day pass. The hike gains a little less than 1000 ft in elevation, which makes it a moderately difficult hike. One gains a great view overlooking Estes Park about 1 mile in. It is an... More
