A pleasant walk around Lake Estes offers views of the valley. There are many benches available around the lake to enjoy the panoramic views.

A nice walk to do other than "shopping" on your day off from hiking or after a hike. Views of mountains, visit the marina, check out the dam, go by Wapiti Meadows where elk may spend the night, and possibly, as we did, have elk on the trail.

I wouldn't consider this a 'hike'. Very easy walk and great views of the mountains if you can see past the electrical towers.

Some beautiful views and dog friendly, which is t easy to find near Estes with so much of the land being the national park. Some not so good views if you do the full loop, power plant and backside of dam, but still worth it.

Nice dog walk with flat sidewalk. Access to Lake. Wasn't too busy in March. Just bring sunscreen. :)
