Estes Park is only 7 miles from the front gate of the ranch. Estes Park is a beautiful quaint mountain town that comes alive in the summer. Main Street is full of antiques, souvenirs, Starbucks and other quaint coffee shops, an authentic malt shop, a gelato shop and candy and chocolate stores everywhere.
It is well worth an afternoon journey to town if you are so tempted. If you go to the malt shop, Cowboy Don likes the apple pie milk shake or the chocolate suicide.
