It was subsequently then closed down yet another 10 days because of a federal government shut-down. However the park is back to business, albeit at a much slower speed.

rocky mountain national park making Colorado's Rocky Mountain National Park was subjected to some difficult times this season with all which has happened there. This national park is a favorite amongst both citizens and travelers and the floods that went sweeping through there did significant destruction to the park. Which had the park closed down for thirteen days. It was then shut down an additional ten days because of a government shut-down. Even so the park is back to business, though at a slower speed. National Park Still Not Completely Accessible The park has been doing everything it can to get things functional and operating. Winter time alone brings shut downs to various sections because of winter weather and intense snows. Many parts continue to be closed down because of the destruction brought on by the rain. The east side of Rocky Mountain National Park has locations which will be closed for a long time as the National Park Services decides the right way to best take care of the damage. Additional sections in that region will open up as soon as they are able to get them working again but numerous of the roads leading to the east area are shut down. Other roadways have reopened and resumed business however the Endovalley Road is shut down to the East Alluvial Fan car parking lot. Destruction to Paths & Visitor Places You will find a number of sections which are severely affected or missing completely. Within the Bear lake Region the Boulder Brooke Bridge is entirely gone along with Glacier Gorge Campsite and Odessa Lake Campsite/Spur Trail bridges. Lumpy Ridge area is missing Bridal Veil Falls Bridge plus the bridges that allow usage of MacGregor Mountain and Rabbit Ears Campsites. North folk region and Wild Basin Area both have missing bridges as well as shut down parts. Accessible to People People may enter into the park but it's slow going. Peak to Peak Scenic Highway from Central City to Estes Park is opened however it is an extended, winding route that is not designed to address a lot of traffic so it usually takes much longer than normal to reach one's destination. There are a number of locations that are completely functional and are carrying on with ranger led activities. Those that plan to do backpacking or camping in the area ought to be mindful of changes to the terrain like missing foot bridges. Hikers ought to be in a position to spend a longer period compared to what they usually would to reach their destinations Day backpackers ought to even be in a position to camp through the night if required.
