When an initial location for the Via Ferrata is tentatively agreed upon, Wyoming State Parks will again reach out to the public for input and will solicit comments from individuals and other interest groups.

When a final route is determined, Wyoming State Parks will 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 proposed during that process.

Materials from the Sinks Canyon State Park Master Planning process are also posted on the website.
