Activities at Estes Park

These are a few of the activities that are available at the Y camp in Estes Park.



Estes Park Center offers a variety of horseback riding options through the Jackson Stables livery located on grounds.  Our horseback trail rides weave through Rocky Mountain National Park and YMCA of the Rockies property. What a great way to get out into the backcountry and possibly see some wildlife. 2 hour experience.



Harness up and climb our 35 ft. zip-line pole to reach the platform, where stepping off, sends you along a zip-line ride of a lifetime! Enjoy a 370 ft. ride between beautiful Ponderosa Pines. Under the supervision of trained staff, feel the rush of fresh mountain air while viewing the snow-capped peaks of Rocky Mountain National Park and hearing the sounds of Glacier Creek. You need to be 10 years of age or older and your weight must be in between  50 and 270 pounds for safety reasons. Tennis shoes or hiking books are the required footwear.
