Commercial Trucking Permits
Generally, commercial vehicles* are prohibited on park roads. Commercial vehicle operators, however, may purchase/be issued Commercial Trucking Permits which allow them to use the roads within the park. The cost of the permit is $20 for a single day round trip or $100 for an annual permit. Commercial vehicles making local deliveries to/inside the park (or to in-holders) are allowed to use park roads without a permit. The $20 daily permit is available at any entrance station. The $100 annual permit requires an application process. Rocky Mountain National Park will begin charging for Commercial Trucking Permits July 15, 2011.
Commercial Trucking Permits are typically reserved for businesses located within the three counties surrounding the park (Boulder, Grand and Larimer).
*A commercial vehicle is defined as any vehicle involved in transporting moveable property for fee or profit, either as a direct charge to another person, business, or otherwise, or used as an incident to providing services to another person, or used in connection with any business.
Commercial vehicles may include any category of vehicle (sedan, truck, etc.). In regards to trucks:
