Although a downtown walk it was very pleasant along the river. Clean and good facilities. River was very pleasant with clear rapid moving water and even a few trout.

We didn't realize you could access most all the shops from the backside on the river walk! It was cooler and shady, places to sit and enjoy the river, and then we found places further into town where you can take off your shoes and...More

There is a nice playground for the kids, beautiful flower beds, nice paths to walk along side the river, leads to little shops and places to eat. A must when visiting Estes Park, we also hit the farmers market and it was a great time!

Yes, the Riverwalk itself is quite pleasant. And while one need not to into any of the businesses bordering the walk, several are so alluring it is hard not to at least peak in and check them out. Along the river one can see birds...More

The shops, art, and playspaces along the riverwalk made it a great morning activity with kids. Mine especially enjoyed the musical instruments and the tunnel with the lights.

If downtown seems busy with people, this is a little escape. Just a place to sit, with the river running by. Flowers are beautiful, and restroom close by the parking lot.

Lots of interesting shops. Nice places to sit and rest and listen to the river. Wear your walking shoes and take an umbrella or raincoat.

We loved this quiet, beautiful walk in Estes Park. We loved listening to the water rushing over the rocks, while watching the birds flying all around Loved seeing the Hummingbirds. . We did not feel like we were in town. We visited several times.

There is lots of free parking at the visitors center so it is a great place to start, otherwise it can be difficult to find parking right downtown. The river walk starts right across the street from the visitors center... More

No there is no dinner cruise along the Riverwalk there. You will find resturants along the way. This is not like San Antonio.
