Riding around Lake Estes was not all that interesting for the cost of riding the bike. We had to trade out a couple bikes because of issues with them. I would not bother with renting bikes just to do the Lake loop trail.

If you are in town, and would like to do something with family for an hour or so, it's a good place to come. We saw many people fishing around the lake too. Not worthwhile to come out of your way though. The lake is...More

We rented a kayak and a canoe for an hour and paid $27 total. Prices were great and so were the quality of both vessels. Extremely friendly staff!

Our 8-year old granddaughter had seen the rental bikes when we were near the marina geocaching. She thought we 'needed' to rent one. Sure ... she could sit in the middle of the seat and make us do all the work pedaling. But, of course...More

October is a gorgeous time of year to come to Colorado! Expect cooler days of upper 50's and mid 60's. The evenings cool down even more. Be prepared for wet or colder weather though, as our Rocky Mountains are unpredictable... More

Also, I'm from Northern California, where we can enjoy the rivers in the Summer. Not so in Colorado. You might find a shallow creek to splash in, but otherwise, expect ice-water!
