The first of the USDA Forest Service fee free days is coming up on January 19th. Fees will be waived for day use in the federal day use and picnic areas we operate.
"The Forest Service manages its lands for multiple uses, including recreation. America’s national forests and grasslands offer more than 150,000 miles of trails for hiking, biking, equestrian and motorized use, and more than 10,000 developed recreation sites. Visitors can choose a wide variety of recreational activities using more than 57,000 miles of streams, 122 alpine ski areas, 338,000 heritage sites, 9,100 miles of National Scenic Byways, 22 National Recreation Areas, 11 National Scenic Areas, eight national monuments, one national preserve and one national heritage area.
The fee-free program is in cooperation with other Federal land management agencies under the Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Act. Fees are waived generally for day-use areas, such as picnic grounds, developed trailheads and destination visitor centers. Concessionaire-operated sites may be included in the waiver if the permit holder wishes to participate." Read the full press release here: Press Release
