In another sign that Estes Park is making a quick recovery, Rustic River Cabins has announced that they will reopen their doors on Tuesday, October 1st. Rustic River Cabins, one of the advertisers on the Accommodations page of our hiking website, made the announcement through an email message I received yesterday.
As of today, most businesses in Estes Park have already reopened, and 99% of Rocky Mountain National Park is now open to travelers and hikers alike.
The folks at Rustic River Cabins also wanted me to pass on that although Highway 34 / Big Thompson Road is technically closed, the sheriffs department is allowing guests to drive to their cabins. You may want to note that since the road is technically closed, the cabins are especially quiet right now, due to very little traffic.
If you're thinking about making the trip up to Estes Park for the elk and the aspens, please visit the Rustic River Cabins website or call 1-970-586-8493.
