Day Trips

Make a day of it – take a packed lunch from the Inn and spend a few hours in the park hiking, driving Trail Ridge Road, and animal watching – then visit Grand Lake for shopping and waterfront views or a lake kayak before returning to the Inn for a soak in the hot tub.

Fishing

Brown, brook, rainbow and cutthroat trout populate lakes, streams and rivers in the park. Stocking is only done to help restore native species, which means some of the best flyfishing in Colorado is just 40 minutes from the Inn!
