Outdoors with Hiking Bob

May 4, 2022

On this week's podcast, Bob and co-host Kevin discuss an upcoming entry fee increase at Rocky Mountain National Park and also discuss the "Timed Reservation System" in use there and at other National Parks during certain times of the year. Does the high cost of entry to some National Parks and the need to reserve a time and date to visit, sometimes far in advance, prevent low income groups from visiting? Why isn't the National Park Service doing something to make visiting parks less expensive, instead of making them into playgrounds only for the well off?

Also, we talk about how Colorado is lowering the cost for annual state park passes, and that city and county parks don't charge entry fees.
