“The fly shop was named after his son, and now his son (Kirk) runs the place. Great family and extremely knowledgeable. Whether you are just looking for some quality gear, need to buy flies, or are a beginner wanting to learn the basics — this is the place to go! They also do snowshoe guided hikes in the winter.”

“Estes Park (15.7 Miles) - Park in the center of Estes Park. All sorts of events here with free music sometime. Some events include the famous Elk Fest, art markets, farmer markets, concerts and festivals. Park in the parking garage and take the shuttle to avoid trying to find a parking place!”

“The Knoll-Willows Open Space is a 20-acre natural park located to the north of (above and behind) the Estes Park town hall and library complex. The open space has no admission fee and is a nice place for a picnic. There are great views of Lake Estes and the entire town of Estes Park and its surrounding distant mountains. It is an easy walk from the parking lot to the ruins of a stone bungalow that burned in 1907. The north trailhead and parking area is just south of East Wonderview Avenue between the entrance to the Stanley Historic District and MacGregor Avenue. ”

“I (Sara) love to kayak. Because the convience allows me to get my boat on the water several times a week, you will often find me paddeling lake Estes. At the marina you can rent kayaks, pedal boats, canoes, bikes, fishing equipment, and pontoon boats. You can't go wrong spending a few hours on a mountain lake. If you have never kayaked, it is much easier then you might think. ”
