Hermit Park Open Space in Estes Park will be closed to the public starting Monday, October 12 through Wednesday, October 14 to allow crews to grade and perform seasonal road maintenance.
All trails and public spaces within Hermit Park will be closed off with current camping reservations scheduled at the same time as the closure will be honored. The roadwork is expected to be completed that week with Hermit Park planned to reopen to the public Thursday, October 15.
Hermit Park Open Space is located just Southeast of Estes Park and spans nearly 1,362 acres nestled into the hills at an elevation of 7,880 – 8,964 feet. Furthermore, the park is filled with ponderosa pine forests and wetland meadows along with a wide variety of mountain life.
