The Trailhead is an independently owned outdoor specialty retail store located in the heart of the Colorado Rockies. Your hosts, Keith and Evelyn Baker, infuse The Trailhead with their own personal style, a blend of Southern hospitality and Midwestern practicality. A self-described granola preppy, most folks would never guess Keith was a career Naval officer. Similarly Evelyn is a study in contrast between heart and mind: an artist’s heart beats strong within the body of a software testing engineer for the civil defense and aerospace industries.
Their shared tastes in design run organic, bohemian, and elegant. Their ultimate tests are simplicity and functionality. As famed French aviator and The Little Prince author Antoine de Saint Exupéry wrote:
In anything at all, perfection is finally attained not when there is no longer anything to add, but when there is no longer anything to take away…
Together, the Bakers bring their sense, sensibilities and lifelong love of the outdoors to The Trailhead. You may come into the Trailhead seeking gear, clothing, advice or shelter from a storm but linger long enough and you’ll probably leave with at least two new friends, three if you count Prana, the irrepressibly happy shop dog. The Bakers infuse the Trailhead with their personal warmth and sincere zest for the outdoors and adventure travel. Trailhead staff, like the Bakers, are outdoor enthusiasts, field-testing and using what they sell. If you haven’t already, stop on in to the Trailhead where you’ll find great values on top-shelf outdoor equipment and approachable, knowledgeable staff.
