We have two rivers that flow through town. Both rivers come from the west from the Rocky Mountain National Park and flow east-on the eastern side of the Continental Divide. Fall River is more northern and has a road along it is called Fall River, easy enough. The other is named Big Thompson. This flows along several roads, such as Hwy 66 (out toward the YMCA), Lower Broadview and Riverside. The two rivers flow together in the downtown area. There are great sitting and playing areas for all to enjoy the rivers. And there are restuarants with patios on the river.You can sometimes see kayakers or tubers having fun.The river flows into Lake Estes which is a wonderful public recreation area. But to answer your question, you really need to use a local agent to show you the areas. Because of the terrain here you don't need to be right on the river to enjoy the sights and sounds of it. Come and enjoy this great lifestyle.
