Best time to visit Rocky Mountain NP is now, and it's free

THE COLORADOAN - Rocky Mountain National Park will waive its entry fee Saturday in celebration of National Public Lands Day.

Organized by the National Environmental Education Foundation, National Public Lands Day challenges Americans to enjoy the great outdoors and come out and volunteer on public lands. Fees will be waived at all National Park Service sites for the 23rd annual event. Visitors to Rocky Mountain National Park can expect large crowds Saturday, as aspens reach their peak autumn color and the elk bugling show continues.

Trail repair and cleanup activities are planned across the state, including two at Northern Colorado public lands.

Poudre Wilderness Volunteers will host a public trail work day at Young Gulch Trail, the once-popular Poudre Canyon trail damaged by the High Park Fire and 2013 flood. No experience is necessary to volunteer for the trail day 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday.
