A permit is required from the Chief Ranger's Office to scatter ashes in the park. There is no charge for the permit. The guidelines below need to be keep in mind when filling out the request:
1. There are no designated sites for scattering of ashes, but the location you choose must be away from developed areas (parking lots, trailheads, campgrounds, picnic areas) and at least 200 feet (70 adult steps) from any water source such as a lake or stream.
Recommended meadows: Upper Beaver Meadows, Mill Creek Basin, Moraine Park, or Horseshoe Park (note: seasonal closures).
Recommended Areas on Trail Ridge Road (closed mid-October to June): Ute Trail, Medicine Bow Curve.
You must still be 200 feet from water at these locations. Other sites may be requested;these are just a few recommendations.
