Recreate Responsibly

Please do not visit if you are sick or were recently exposed to COVID-19. Park staff will continue to monitor all park functions to ensure that visitors adhere to CDC guidance for mitigating risks associated with the transmission of COVID-19 and take any additional steps necessary to protect public health.

  • Keep your distance. Consistent with CDC guidance regarding areas of substantial or high transmission, visitors, regardless of vaccination status, are required to wear a mask inside all park buildings.
  • Keep it with you.
    If you brought it, take it with you. Trash pickup and restroom facilities will continue to be limited in many park areas. Follow Leave No Trace principles.
  • Know your limits.
    Rocky Mountain National Park is one of the busiest search and rescue parks in the country. Many of these incidents could be avoided with visitors planning and making responsible decisions. It is critical to make wise choices to keep our national park rangers and first responders out of harm’s way.
  • Protect wildlife.
    Obey speed limits and be aware of wildlife.
