Stretch your legs with a stroll around a glacial lake, and keep your eyes peeled for the herds of elk that are often grazing in Moraine Park. Drive along Many Parks Curve on Trail Ridge Road, the highest continuous motorway in the United States, and enjoy expansive park views. Stop in Estes Park, a mountain town whose main street is lined with boutiques, souvenir shops, and eateries. Enjoy free time for lunch on your own before returning to Denver's Union Station, where your tour ends.
