Surrounded by the Roosevelt National Forest and Rocky Mountain National Park made Allenspark has very stunning scenery.

Allenspark is located on the magnificent Peak to Peak Scenic Highway in the park's southeast corner. This small village, 12 miles south of Estes Park, offers more than simply easy access to Rocky Mountain National Park.

Here are 5 places you can visit in Allenspark:

Chapel on The Rock

Saint Malo's Chapel on the Rock is a nearly 100-year-old operating Catholic church perched atop a stunning rock formation in Allenspark, Colorado. It is a notable historical site in Colorado, administered by the Catholic Archdiocese of Denver.

Monsignor Joseph Bosetti founded the Chapel in 1916 after discovering the rocky area where the future church would be built and being inspired by Matthew 16:19, which states, "Upon this rock, I will build my church." Monsignor Bosetti did precisely that, but because to a lack of funding, the construction was delayed.

Sombrero Ranch

Sombrero Stables has been offering one of the greatest guided horseback riding experiences in the country since 1958.

Eagle Plum Trading Post

Anyone who has visited this location can confidently say that it is unlike any other. A place with whispering walls and creaking floors, a place with a unique history, a patina left by time, and a never-ending cast of characters.
