May Getaway – Wildlife & Wildflowers

May is a special time to visit the Estes Park area. Throughout Rocky Mountain National Park, wildflowers are beginning to blossom. Also, the cows in our world-renowned elk herds are showing off their spotted and very cute calves. Bring the family, bring the friends to see some of Mother Nature’s best work.

Elk calf
Calving in Rocky Mountain National Park, typically, occurs from mid-May through June. The spots on calves help to camouflage these new-born babies from predators.

Estes-Rocky May Activities
Guests to our area in the spring will enjoy a variety of outdoor activities At lower elevations, guests can choose from hiking, climbing, horseback riding, fly fishing, wildlife viewing, photography, and just taking in the spectacular mountain scenery. At higher elevations in Rocky, weather permitting, there’s snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, snowboarding, sledding.

One very special May event is the Estes Park Rotary Duck Race and Festival on Saturday, May 5. The event begins at Nicky’s Resort at 11:30 am. Ducks are dropped into Fall River at 1:00 pm. At about 1:30 pm, ducks begin crossing the finish line at the George Hicks Riverside Plaza in downtown Estes Park. You can sponsor a duck (helps good causes in Estes Park), or just enjoy the live music and festivities.

This first weekend in May, Duck Race Weekend, is a great weekend to visit the Estes-Rocky area. The before-tax cost for a three-night stay (Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, May 5/6/7) is $458. This is for our two-bedroom premium cabin with a full kitchen that sleeps six. We have only a few cabins left.

Rocky Mountain National Park
Rocky is one of the premier National Parks in the U-S. It’s beautiful and engaging every day of the year. In addition to the outdoor activities mentioned above, there are insightful Ranger-led programs every day in Rocky.
May is also a fabulous time of the year for birding in Rocky, as our fine feathered friends migrate north from Central and South America. Rocky offers a 90-minute ranger-led Spring Bird Walk Tuesday through Friday at 8:00 am at the Cub Lake Trailhead.
