Me and my husband will be spending 2 and a half days in RMNP during August and staying near Estes Park. I have been looking at things to do and wondered if anyone could help narrow down to the best things to do in the short time we have. We love hiking and being out in nature and have found the following things:
Drive on Trail Ridge and visit the Alpine Visitor Centre (considering this on the day we arrive from Casper)
I have seen trails for Bear Lake, and Nymph to Emerald Lake is this all on the same trail?
Alberta Falls Trail
Sky Pond Trail
Ghost Tour at Stanley Hotel
As we will not have time to do all of these any help or advice on what to pick over another would be great, we do plan to head off early to try and beat some of the crowds at this time of year.
