BROOMFIELD, Colo. - Hiking near a nuclear dump site? It's happening.

The public is now going to be allowed access to the Rocky Flats Wildlife Refuge, near the former nuclear site.

After contamination, decades of cleanup, and billions of dollars spent, officials say Rocky Flats is safe for the public.

"The contaminant levels there are below any regulatory concern," Carl Spreng of the Colorado Health Department said.

The Health Department has cleared the site, transferring control to the US Fish and Wildlife Service, but there are still those who call the refuge a threat to public health.

"It should be studied and our group is asking for independent verification," activist Jon Lipsky said.
