There is so much to see inside Rocky Mountain National Park, but sometimes driving everywhere and finding parking might not be the most convenient. Or maybe you are flying and won’t even have a car! Whatever the case, Park Services has got you covered with transportation. They have got shuttles that run every day through summer.
There are three main shuttles: Bear Lake Route, Moraine Park Route, and Hiker Shuttle. These routes can get you to most entrances to hiking routes and scenic views. Buses on the Hiker Shuttle Route will make stops at the Estes Park Fairgrounds Park-n-Ride, the Estes Park Visitor Center, the Beaver Meadows Visitor Center, and Park & Ride. The first bus will leave the Fairgrounds Park-n-Ride at 6:30 a.m., and the last bus will leave Park & Ride at 7:30 p.m. The Hiker Shuttle will run on an hourly schedule early and late in the day, switching to a half-hour schedule from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. If you’re staying in Estes Park, then the Hiker Shuttle can get you from Estes to Rocky Mountain. You will need to buy a pass to ride the Hiker Shuttle. You can read more detailed information about these shuttles on the NPS website.
