TRAVEL + DIRECTIONS

Wedding Travel Info:

The wedding will be taking place in a private home in Estes Park, Colorado.

Please note that the house is located at approximately 9,200ft.  Some of our East Coast friends need a day or two in Denver to acclimate to the high altitude before heading into the mountains.

If you are flying into Denver, here are directions to the home:

From Estes Park, CO . . .
Directions from Estes Park to Whispering Pines Mtn. Hideaway

1. In Estes Park, go to the intersection of US-34 and US-36. There is a McDonald’s on the Northwest corner of this intersection. Reset odometer here!
2. Starting from the intersection of US-34 and US-36, go East on US-36/ST Vrain Ave.
3. Turn right onto CO-7. Odometer should be about .3. (There is a turn with a hospital sign immediately before the turn you want to take. Make sure you are on CO-7 and not driving to the hospital.)
4. As you climb up the hill out of Estes Park, you will pass Lilly Lake on the right.
5. A little farther along, you will pass a sign for Aspen Lodge on the left.
6. About half a mile to three quarters of a mile past the Aspen Lodge sign, you will pass a sign for Long’s Peak on the right. The sign lists the elevation of Long’s Peak.
7. Shortly after the Long’s Peak sign, you will see a group of mail boxes on the right. Behind the mailboxes will be a sign that says “High Peak Camp”.
8. Turn right on the dirt road at “High Peak Camp” sign. This is Preservation Drive. Odometer should read about 8.2.
9. As you enter the High Peak Camp, you’ll see some buildings. Turn right on Salvation Lane. Odometer should read about 8.4.
10. Pass a small parking lot on the right.
11. At the fork in the road, stay right.
12. At T in road, go left. This is Gillette Drive. Immediately after you turn, you should see a barn on your right with a sign that reads “Double JK Ranch”.
13. Take the first left after the barn. This is Goblin’s Castle Road.
14. Take the first right that isn’t a driveway. (Shortly before this turn you should see a driveway for “Mitchell’s” on the right and a driveway for “Kochner” on the left.) It’s a hard right going uphill. (Note that continuing straight takes you off of Goblins Castle Road and puts you onto Inn Brook Road.) Odometer should read about 9.0
15. Follow this road almost to the end. It’s a steep uphill climb in places. Whispering Pines Mountain Hideaway is the second to last house on this road. You will see an address sign with 707 on a tree right next to our driveway on your right. Odometer should read about 9.4 or 9.5.

(Note that cell phones don’t have service in this area, so if you need to call, go down into Estes Park – continuing north on CO-7 – until you have cell coverage. Estes Park is only about 10 minutes past the High Peak Camp turnoff.)
