Getting to Estes Park is fairly easy – there are no high mountain roads to travel, even in the winter, and we are only about an hour and a half from Denver, Colorado’s capital city and home of the nearest major airport.
There is no public transportation to Estes Park. Your options (short of walking or biking) are to drive, to take a private shuttle bus from the airport, or to beg a friend to come pick you up (our preferred method).
If you are driving, here are directions to Estes Park.
If you need to rent a car, you can do so either at the airport in Denver or at the local company:

Reservations are highly recommended. You might be able to show up without notice during the winter, and they might be able to find a car for you, but in the summer, fuhgeddaboutit.
