SOUTHERN UTAH — Are you looking to explore southeastern Utah’s sanctuaries more? Well this year there’s a little-known deal for you . . . a $25, year-long pass to the national parks and national monuments of southeastern Utah. This includes Canyonlands, Arches, Natural Bridges National Monument, and Hovenweep National Monument.
With this “locals” annual pass, you are allowed unlimited entry to all of these places for an entire year after your purchase date.
If you were going to visit all these places, it would cost you about $32, and that would only allow 7-days in each place Sandy Griffin, employee at Canyonlands National Park, said.
Another option, for those who want to visit more than just these national parks and monuments this year, you can buy the unlimited year-long pass to all national parks in the United States for $80.
Passes are non-refundable and non-transferable.
This $25 “locals” annual pass is available for purchase at the Arches Entrance Station, Canyonlands’ Island in the Sky Visitor Center, and Hovenweep and Natural Bridges Visitor Centers. It can be purchased at any time and will expire a year from the purchase date.
If you’d like to give this as a gift, the pass must remain unsigned and invalidated by the purchaser. Then, the pass must be validated upon first use by the gift recipient at one of the entrances.
