Maps & Directions

We are more or less back to normal as far as driving directions are concerned. Rebuilding after the floods as been much quicker than anticipated! Hwy 34 from Loveland is in great shape and normal travel times are to be expected with occasional delays in areas due to infrastructure work in/around communities along HWY 34. Please note that it will probably be best to avoid HWY 36 from Lyons to Estes if possible. They are ramping up another round of rebuilding and you could experience delays of up to one hour. An alternate route that is only marginally longer than the normal HWY 36 route is to take HWY 7 out of Lyons and into Estes Park. Click the following link for directions: http://goo.gl/maps/eo1Fl

    **Please note** These toll booths are now License Plate Toll (they take a picture of the plate and send a bill to the registered address of the license plate), they do not take cash or credit cards. They are approx $2.50/booth, but be aware that your rental car company may charge you much much more ($10/booth) if you drive your rental car on the toll road. Check with your car rental company first! **
