WILD CHILD

CONSIDERING A DAY OUT IN ROCKY
MOUNTAIN NATIONAL PARK OR ANY
OF THE OTHER PUBLIC LANDS AROUND
ESTES PARK? THEN YOU NEED TO
PLAN ACCORDINGLY.
First, arm yourself with information.
Visit MACDONALD BOOK SHOP (152 E.
Elkhorn Ave., 970-586-3450) to source
hiking books, trail maps of Rocky Mountain National Park and nature guide
books for the area. Also check out the
children's and young readers' section.
At Macdonald and other stores around
town, look for ROCKY MOUNTAIN DAY

THE VILLAGE
STORE

ENSURE YOU'RE READY FOR A DAY OUT (OR LONGER) IN
ROCKY MOUNTAIN NATIONAL PARK OR IN ROOSEVELT NATIONAL
FOREST BY PLANNING AHEAD. EQUIP YOURSELF WITH KNOWLEDGE
AND GEAR TO STAY SAFE AND CONTINUE HAVING FUN.

CINNAMON'S
BAKERY

HIKES. This perfect companion to a day
in the national park outlines 24 hikes,
ranging from short and sweet to long and
challenging. Each entry includes a map, a
trail profile, a description and directions
for how to access it. If you're traveling
with youngsters, consider stopping by
WILD CHILD (1751 N. Lake Ave #107,
970-581-7446), where the staff introduces
families to custom-designed explorer
kits. Local teachers developed each kit
to educate about the wildlife, birds, bugs
and flora of the Estes Valley and the
national park. Try one out at the on-site
Learning Lab.
Then, make sure you've got what you
need for fun and safety. It never hurts
to "wake up and roll" into CINNAMON'S
(920 W. Elkhorn Ave., 970-480-1501),
where freshly baked, oversized cinnamon
rolls in various flavors await. Pick up a
few to enjoy later in the national park
or Roosevelt National Forest during a
breakfast picnic. Also, stop into COUNTRY
MARKET (900 Moraine Ave., 970-5862025) for last-minute needs: trail snacks,
handcrafted deli sandwiches, water,
approved firewood, ice, fuel, rain gear,

first aid supplies, sun protection and
more. It is conveniently located near
the Beaver Meadows entrance to the
national park.
Now that you're equipped to explore
nature, discover it in a unique way-
with WILD SIDE 4X4 TOURS (212 E. Elkhorn
Ave., 970-586-8687)! The outfitter's
national park tours are available yearround while its off-road adventures in
the national forest operate May 15 to
December 1. In winter, enjoy a gentle-
and warm-photo tour with spectacular
views of waterfalls, lakes and animals.
Snacks and hot cocoa with schnapps
enhance the experience.
After a day or a week in the wilds,
campers especially, but really anyone
needing a place to refresh and regroup,
appreciates DAD'S MAYTAG LAUNDRY
(457 E. Wonderview Ave., 970-586-2025).
Here, you find clean, untimed showers;
free WiFi; large-capacity washers and
dryers (ideal for sleeping bags); a fulltime attendant; a coin changer and a TV
lounge-all in a safe environment.
