Colorado in Early November
Found some cheap flights into Denver first week of November and said hell why not? I've read where alot of places will be closed due to off-season but does anyone have some ideas on things to do? Don't have a room booked yet so I'm open to anything. Looked at Rocky Mountain National Park, Estes Park, Aspen, Durango..

re: Colorado in Early November
Durango is nowhere near Denver.
Early NOV where you go will likely depend on the weather

you could get lucky or you could be snowed in.
the towns west of Denver are nice (Morrison, evergreen etc) you could get a cabin on beaver creek. South of there is salida and BV. On the interstate going west is Idaho springs

Northwest is boulder and RMNP.

all of those are easy driving distance weather permitting

It all depends on elevation

Estes I think should be great that time of year. I would be a little wary of traveling far from Denver like Aspen or Durango in case the weather is bad. Breckenridge would likely also be cool and not too far.

Hiking will probably be fine, but you’ll need boots and spikes, I bet. Possibly snowshoe rentals. And a big jacket and water proof pants, likely. You can rent all the cold weather gear at loads of places if it turns out it’s actually needed. Good trails in Estes are Sky Pond (little bit longer), Emerald Lake (shorter), Black Lake (longer).

in November? I would not want any part of that scramble by the waterfall with any snow or ice around.

Same here. Cheap flights had me going in 2 weekends. I’m aiming for Colorado Springs area for the back half of trip. Pikes peak and Garden of the Gods
First part is Estes and RMNP

RMNP you can't go wrong. I would throw in Glenwood Springs - they are even offering travelers $100 credit to use around town. Colorado Springs is another nice area.

We were in Estes Park 2 weeks ago. If you're going with just adults, I recommend staying at The Landing at Estes Park. If you're going with kids, the YMCA of the Rockies has so many family activities. The lodging isn't plush but the number of things to do there outweighs this! Another bonus of the YMCA is that you can walk into the RMNP and not have to worry about reservations or passes.

Our two best meals were at Seasoned and Bird & Jim. Be sure to make reservations if you want to dine there!

Hiked it today. It was tricky but doable. The bigger issue was the 50mph winds once you got to Lake of Glass
