2017-2018 Estes Park Official Visitors Guide - 91

ESSENTIALS

COMPASS:
Don't rely on your smart
phone; chances are
good you will not
have service where
you are hiking. Use
a compass to be sure
you're on the right track.

FUEL: Bring
snacks to
sustain you.

BE PREPARED
HEADLAMP: These are hands-free and handy,
especially if darkness falls before you've made
it home.

FIRST-AID KIT: You never know
when you might need a Band-Aid.

Ensure a safe outing by
understanding that mountain weather can change
quickly and Estes Park is
at 7,522 feet, with Rocky
Mountain National Park even
higher. Bring a well-packed
backpack and consider
hiking with a buddy. Also,
let someone else who is
not going with you know
your route and destination.
Local sports shop owners
Kirk Bien, Rob Mardock and
David Novic suggest what to
carry with you.

WHISTLE: Use it to attract
attention and alert wildlife.

WATER: Exercising at altitudes
above 7,500 feet may cause
shortness of breath, dizziness and
headaches. Counter those effects by
drinking plenty of water, no matter
the season. Don't wait until you are
thirsty (a sign that you're already
dehydrated); instead, drink water
regularly when at high elevations.

RAIN GEAR:
Take a jacket.
Storms can
move in
quickly.

MAPS: Know
where you're
going. Leave
early in the
morning if
you're hiking
above the tree
line, and plan
to be back into
the trees by
midafternoon to
avoid potentially
dangerous
exposure to
afternoon
thunderstorms.

SUN PROTECTION: For every
1,000 feet in elevation gain, light
exposure increases up to 10
percent, meaning that at 11,000
feet, your skin can burn in just
six minutes of exposure. Protect
your skin and eyes year-round.

HIKING
BOOTS:
Choose a
sturdy pair
with good
ankle
support.
Waterproof
versions help
keep feet
dry and
blister-free.
