Rocky Mountain National Park Hiker Shuttle Tickets

Rocky Mountain National Park Hiker Shuttle Tickets

Access the Bear Lake Road corridor within Rocky Mountain National Park via the park’s Hiker Shuttle. The Hiker Shuttle provides a direct connection from the Town of Estes Park Visitor Center to RMNP's Park and Ride transit hub, located along Bear Lake Road.   

This connection allows you to leave your vehicle behind at your lodging or parked in the Town’s parking structure adjacent to the Estes Park Visitor Center (near the intersections of HWY 36 and 34) and access many of the park’s most well known destinations within the Bear Lake Road corridor using the park’s interior shuttle system. Additionally, the shuttle system allows you to create your own “loop” hikes enabling you start at one trailhead and exit at another.   

When you are ready to return to the Estes Park Visitor Center, simply return to the park’s Park and Ride transit hub to catch a return Hiker Shuttle back to town. Please remember, the last bus departs from Park and Ride at 5:15 pm.  

Please keep in mind that Hiker Shuttle tickets only allow you to access to the Bear Lake Road corridor inside RMNP.  

Your Hiker Shuttle ticket is only valid for the Hiker Shuttle. You cannot drive your vehicle into Rocky using this ticket.

When booking your Hiker Shuttle reservation, please be aware that all members of your party, regardless of age, need a ticket to ride the Hiker Shuttle. One person may reserve up to 4 tickets per $2.00 reservation. If your party needs more than four tickets, another member of your party will need to book an additional reservation. 

Seats are limited, please only book the number of tickets you need so others may enjoy the park experience.
