ROCKY MOUNTAIN NATIONAL PARK, Colo. (AP) -- Rocky Mountain National Park officials are considering whether to allow bicycles on a two-mile section of the East Shore Trail in the park.

Bicycles already can go on the first 3/4 mile of trail, which is on land administered by the U.S. Forest Service, but bicycles aren't allowed on the trail within the park. Currently, bicycles are restricted to park roads.

Park officials are reviewing whether to let bicyclists use a two-mile section of the East Shore Trail that extends north from the Shadow Mountain Dam to the park boundary.

A public meeting is scheduled Thursday night in Grand Lake to get public input.

A final decision isn't expected until next year, and there will be more opportunities for public comment before then.

    Keep the sprocket heads out of the parks so the rest of us can still enjoy our time there.
