The Sky Pond trail will take you to towering rock formations that you would have thought only existed in Europe. This 8.6 mile hike has it all, pine forest, hidden alpine likes, alpine tundra and jagged peaks, be sure to take plenty of pictures.
One more hike we highly recommend is The Loch via Glacier Gorge. This trail features incredible views of Taylor Glacier, Eastern Glacier Knobs and several other breathtaking scenic mountain vistas.
One of the best things about staying with us at the A-Lodge is the combination of access to the uncrowded hiking trails close by and the world famous trails in RMNP with a fun hotel in the laid back town of Lyons. While Estes Park is closer to RMNP the prices are higher and the crowds are significant, can you say traffic jam? This is not the vibe you came to Colorado for and not the vibe you get when you choose us as your Rocky Mountain Park lodging option.
Our location is an easy 30 minutes from the main east side entrance to RMNP and the same distance to the Longs Peak entrance. It can take 30 minutes to get through Estes Park on a busy day in the summer so in these conditions why not enjoy the ease of taking the road less traveled.
Want more beta on which trails are right for you? Our staff are all outdoor adventurers and are happy to spend the time with you to pick the right trail for your adventure. This and our suites with equipped kitchens that help you get that alpine start and on-site beer garden make the A-Lodge the perfect place for your Colorado hiking vacation.
