FYI: Glacier Gorge Trailhead to Become WAY More Popular June 18-20th!

in Estes Local

Since they'll be closing the Bear Lake parking area those dates for road resurfacing, expect the Glacier Gorge parking area spots to be full way earlier…

The hiker's bus will still run to Glacier Gorge trailhead parking area, and you can then hike the short half mile up to the Bear Lake trail head.

Get the full details here if you plan on hitting the trails up there those dates:  Bear Lake Parking Closure

Kill a Bear or Be Aware

in Estes Local

We do not like to think we had a hand in the premature or accidental death of one.

We want to believe that we have had no part in a bear’s untimely death, especially since it would bother us to no end if we knew that we did.

Yet, we often choose to ignore the telltale signs that we very well may have had a hand in it.

Increase your bear awareness, and pass it on to friends and family who may be visiting the area and need some awareness too!

Don't Kill The Bears!

(The bear in the pic had to be killed by a local law enforcement officer.  So who killed the bear really…the officer or the hiker who left food in his car at the trailhead?)

Estes Alert! Take Your Recyclables To a New Place Starting Wednesday!

in Estes Local

As of this Wednesday, May 1st Estes residents will be taking their recycle items to a new location, NOT the transfer station where you have been taking them!

The Town of Estes Park and the Larimer County Solid Waste Department are working together to make residential recycling easier for the residents of Estes Valley.

This is a good thing…you won't have to wait in line with people paying to dump regular trash!
