New Permits at Marys Lake in Colorado

After a year of discussion and collaboration between the Bureau of Reclamation, AMGA, Access Fund, Estes Valley Recreation and Park District, and local guides, the Marys Lake climbing area near Estes Park, CO is now open for commercial use. This area is prized as an instructional venue due to easy access, varied terrain, and quality rock. Permits can be obtained by contacting Estes Valley Recreation and Park District at 970-586-8191. The fee is $200.00 for an annual permit.

Show your support for the new access at Marys Lake! A stewardship event will be held on June 14, 2019 from 9:00-12:30. Volunteers will close and rehabilitate social trails, install trail markers, and make other site improvements. To participate, please contact Matt Wade, AMGA Advocacy and Policy Director, at 303-847-4482 or [email protected].
