Rocky Mountain National Park: No plans to close parts of park

April 14, 2015

Rocky Mountain National Park officials say they have no plans to close parts of the park on high traffic days. 

Last week, the Loveland Herald-Reporter reported officials were "discussing closing certain areas" on the park's busiest days. Park spokeswoman Kyle Patterson said Monday that's not accurate:

"The only area we discussed continuing to manage (not close) in the future, was in reference to Bear Lake Road when/if we have another day like September 27, 2014, when we had 13,295 vehicles in the park," Patterson said in a statement
