Rocky Mountain NP considering rationing entry to park to keep it from being overwhelmed on reopening
On Tuesday (May 12) night, Rocky Mountain National Park (RMNP) Superintendent, Darla Sidles, along with Visitor Use Specialist, John Hannon, and Public Information Officer, Kyle Patterson, joined the Town Board meeting to provide an update on the reopening of RMNP.
They presented a list of updates that were released earlier on Tuesday, but also expanded on their plans for a phased reopening. Those plans include a proposal to the Department of the Interior (DOI) to move forward with access based on a scheduled time and approved permit. The park is hoping to limit the number of visitors to 13,500 per day during the first stage of reopening.
