The Lake Estes Trail is a paved pathway that loops around its namesake lake, offering scenic views of the water and surrounding Rocky Mountains. In the fall, watch for elk that roam in the area. On the south side of the lake, you can find restrooms and drinking fountains in the Cherokee Draw Day-Use Area, and the trail is near downtown Estes Park with plentiful places to eat, shop and sightsee.
Parking is located on the west end of the trail at the Estes Park Visitor Center, near the corner of N. St. Vrain Avenue (US 36) and Big Thompson Avenue (US 34).
