Hermit Park Open Space Limited Opening July 4th Weekend

Department: Natural Resources
Release Date: Jun 13, 2014

Contact Information:

Chris Fleming, Blue Mountain District Manager, (970) 619-4456

Flood repairs to the roads at Hermit Park Open Space are proceeding on schedule. There will be limited access to the area beginning on the July 4th weekend and other weekends during July until the project is complete.

Camping reservations for the July 4th and subsequent weekends can be made beginning at 8 a.m. on Sunday, June 15th by visiting www.larimercamping.com or calling 1-800-397-7795.
 
Availability will include Hermit’s Hollow and Bobcat Campgrounds and select cabins. Visitors can begin accessing the area for both overnight and day use at 8:00 a.m. on Thursday July 3. The area will close again at 6 p.m. on Sunday July 6th, but will re-open the following weekend. The Kruger Rock Trail will be open, but there will not be any public access beyond the pavilion area, therefore no access to the Homestead Meadows Trail from Hermit Park Open Space will be available until repairs are complete.
 
As July 4th is a holiday weekend the standard reservation rules will apply. Reservations must be for 3 days, Thursday July 3rd through the night of Saturday July 5. During this period of time water will only be available at the Open Space entrance.
 
Road construction will continue during the week, and the project be completed later in July, when a full opening of the area will take place. Thank you for your continued patience as we work to restore full access to Hermit Park Open Space. The most current information about Hermit Park Open Space will be available on http://larimer.org/naturalresources/hermitpark.cfm.
