Location and
Driving Directions

Directions from Denver

  • Drive west on Interstate 70 into the mountains.
  • Continue approximately 5 miles past the town of Idaho Springs to the exit for Interstate 40.
  • Exit onto Interstate 40 and proceed through the small town of Empire. Watch your speed - the police love to stop you here!
  • Continue over Berthoud Pass and then through the towns of Winter Park, Frasier, and Tabernash.
  • In the next town, Granby, watch for the exit (on the right) for Grand Lake, State Road 34. Exit here toward Grand Lake.
  • Continue on past the beautiful Lake Granby and Shadow Mountain Lake until you reach the town of Grand Lake. There will be a large sign marking the town, where you will turn right.
  • Once you turn off 34 the road will naturally take you down into the center of town and will become Grand Ave.
  • Drive completely through town until the boardwalk ends and it looks as if you will be driving into a house. Turn right here and head to the waterfront. Immediately in front of you will be the sign for Grand Lake Marina. You have arrived! Time for fun.

Alternate Directions from Denver
(Trail Ridge Road)

  • If you are looking for scenery and adventure, and it's Summer or Fall, you might like the drive through Rocky Mountain National Park on Trail Ridge Road. This is a paved but seasonal road, usually open from June through Mid October. Check the Colorado Department of Transportation Web Site to ensure the road is open before you go (click here). Expect this route from Denver to take 45-60 minutes longer than the route above.
  • Head out of Denver going north on Interstate 25.
  • Staying to the left after crossing Interstate 70 look for the exit 217 to Boulder (Interstate 36 West).
  • Continue on US 36 West to the town of Boulder. The highway will end and turn into 28th street. Take 28th street all the way through the town of boulder and watch for the signs for US 36 again.
  • Continue on 36 west (also known here as Foothills Highway) to the town of Lyons.
  • Go through the town of Lyons and stay on 36. This beautiful drive will take you all the way to Estes Park.
  • Estes Park is a good place for a bio-break.
  • Stay on 36 through Estes Park until you see signs for Trail Ridge Road or Highway 34. Enter Rocky Mountain National Park and follow 34 (Trail Ridge Road) through the park. Be sure to take your camera!
  • It will take a bit more than an hour to drive through the park, where you will exit the west side. As you come down the hill from the park you will see the sign for Grand Lake Village on the left. Turn left into Grand Lake.
  • Once you turn off 34 the road will naturally take you down into the center of town and will become Grand Ave.
  • Drive completely through town until the boardwalk ends and it looks as if you will be driving into a house. Turn right here and head to the waterfront. Immediately in front of you will be the sign for Grand Lake Marina. You have arrived! Time for fun.
