Colorado’s Rocky Mountain Park is going to welcome people back again soon — but, of course, with certain restrictions.
The first stage of reopening is scheduled for May 27th and will include shuttle bus operations within the Bear Lake Road corridor, reports the Denver Post. Every bus will transfer no more than 15 people at a time, to make for proper social distancing possible. Wilderness backcountry camping permits will be issued starting the same day.
Almost half of the campgrounds at Moraine Park and Glacier Basin Campgrounds will reopen, while Aspenglen, Timber Creek, and Longs Peak will remain closed. Some parts of Moraine Park and Glacier Basin Campgrounds will open on June 4th.
It is currently unknown if Hiker Shuttle from the Estes Park Visitor Center will reopen at all any time soon.
The reopening is coordinated with guidance from the White House and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as well as state and local public health authorities.
