“From the public feedback we have received thus far, the location of the Via Ferrata is a concern for some people,” said Kyle Bernis, State Parks District Manager.  “Our goal for this meeting is to bring together people representing different perspectives to have a deeper discussion on that topic and achieve a resolution.”

After an initial location is tentatively agreed upon at this or a future meeting, Wyoming State Parks will again reach out to the public for input and solicit comments from individuals and other interest groups. When a final route is determined, Wyoming State Parks would consult tribal governments and any other necessary federal or state agencies. 

Wyoming State Parks has been committed to public engagement and transparency throughout the Sinks Canyon Master Plan process and will continue to do so moving forward with the projects approved during that process.
