[Talk-us] hgv=designated in US National Park

No problem, had to do some searching and further remembering. The ‘agreement’ we were using was called the ‘tri-county waiver’ which allowed Boulder, Grand and Larimer county residents to pass through for work (it has changed a bit according to a search).  However, there is also: http://www.nps.gov/romo/planyourvisit/commercial_trucking_permits.htm so I think access=destination may be best choice through RMNP (according to the wiki, first thought was =permissive)?

Thanks for the additional information. Perhaps hgv=destination?


I am pretty sure that if one showed up at one of the Estes Park entrances with a semi and told them that you had to make a delivery in Granby they wouldn't let you through. The next time I am up there I will ask.

Dang, sorry; just caught my typo, hgv=private may NOT be the proper tag.

Hi again Mike, I should have specified – the entirety of Trail Ridge Road J


I think we did actually come in (from the east, i.e. FC to Granby) via 36.  I would say hgv=private is the ‘correct’ tag; in this case the ‘highway’ is actually ‘State controlled w/ agreements of the Park Service’, maybe Jim or one of them have a better answer, but it seems more like “this is a State Highway” if you ‘know the rules’ and have a valid ID you can use it accordingly. (in our case we just had to have a Fort Collins address and say “we’re on our way to work in Granby” – this was in either our work trucks or my personal vehicle).


Anyway, hope this helps find proper tagging for 34/36/Trail Ridge Road; cheers!
