Great, homemade Italian dinners, craft beers, delicious wine, friendly service and also great pizza! They also have great breakfast, I enjoyed the huevos rancheros but everything else passing by looked great too. This is a great stop to the beginning or the end of the day on your mountain adventures!

The Estes Park Aerial Tramway was designed and built by Robert Heron. Mr. Heron became involved with tramway during World War Two. The 10th Mountain Division contracted the engineering company Mr. Heron worked for to design a portable tramway for use in Italy and Germany. The task was assigned to Mr. Heron. A book entitled “The Tramway Builders”, by Philip A. Lunday and Charles M. Hampton gives the history about these tramways and the men who built them. After the war Mr. Heron traveled to Europe to study the tramways and became more fascinated with their design and capabilities. Because of the steep terrain, many trams in Europe do not require any towers to support the wire ropes. The entire length is a free span between the bottom and the top stations. The Estes Park Aerial Tramway utilizes this design. A free span is fairly uncommon in the United States and this type of design affords a very smooth ride. Mr. Heron also became one of the pioneering chair lift builders for the United States ski industry and built the first double chair lift in this country. The Estes Park Aerial Tramway opened to the public in July, 1955. Since then it has safely carried more than 3 million people to the summit of Prospect Mountain. The tramway is still owned and operated by the Heron family. May 25th to September 2nd Open 9 am-6pm daily

This is so close to our property for a hike with a creek and waterfall along the way. The Middle Saint Vrain Creek is a good fly-fishing stream where anglers cast for rainbow, brown and cutthroat trout. Many trails in the vicinity are open to hiking and biking, including Sourdough and Buchanan Pass trails. The Indian Peaks Wilderness boundary is four miles from the west end of the campground. Mountain biking is allowed on the first five miles of Buchanan Pass Trail. Bikers can ride a loop from Peaceful Valley or Camp Dick, via Buchanan Pass Trail and Middle Saint Vrain Road, or Coney Cutoff and Coney Creek Roads and Sourdough Trail. The Middle Saint Vrain and Bunce School roads are popular among off-road vehicle enthusiasts. This site will close early this year, September 2, due to bridge reconstruction

This trail is about 3 miles from the house. It also has a great creek for picnicking and swimming. I'd definitely check it out! We love the hike to Miller Rock too! (see below) ALL TRAILS APP is great for hiking with reviews from hikers. The easy Ceran Saint Vrain Trail follows the South Saint Vrain Creek downstream for 1.9 miles. The trail ends at National Forest System Road 252, a rough four-wheel drive road. This road climbs 0.5 miles northwest to a four-way intersection from which it is a steep half-mile to the left up to Miller Rock. Miller Rock is a scenic high-point that offers 360-degree views.
