FROM HIGHWAYS

More than the base camp
to Rocky Mountain National
Park, Estes Park is also the
gateway to Roosevelt National
Forest, meaning outdoor
enthusiasts can double their
recreation pleasure.
Roosevelt, one of the oldest
national forests, was set aside
in 1897 as part of the Medicine
Bow Forest Reserve and eventually renamed after President
Theodore Roosevelt in 1932.
Today, these lands provide
opportunities to practice many
of the same activities available
in the national park, plus several that are not. For example,
hikers may hike with their
dogs on national forest trails.
Some roads allow ATV or snowmobile use, and campfires may
be lit in designated areas.
Additionally, Roosevelt supports multiple use, including
recreation, agriculture and
grazing. Within its boundary
are public lands, private
property and designated wilderness areas. In fact, about
40 percent of the land in the
national forests near Estes
Park is privately or otherwise
owned. (Please be aware that
under state law, you may
not enter these private lands
without authority from the
property owner.) But don't let
that stop you from exploring
the national forest's more
than 1.25 million acres.
In general, there is less
of an employee presence
in national forests when
compared to other public-

use lands, so be prepared to
tackle your outing on your
own. Definitely carry a map
and compass to ensure you
know your location and can
identify which kind of land
you might be traversing. Both
the Comanche Peak and
Indian Peaks wilderness areas
are close to Estes Park, and
they have more restrictions
than other lands within the
national forest.
No matter where you find
yourself within the national
forest, look around. You
might be crossing the Continental Divide and witnessing
amazing views into Rocky
Mountain National Park. Or,
you could end up fishing at
a pristine lake deep within
the heart of the forest. Enjoy
discovering your special spot
while making Estes Park your
base camp for accessing
beautiful public lands.
