New parking and admission rates

WTA has the low-down on new parking and admission rates throughout Washington and Oregon.

Notably, the National Forests have some new rules.

All USFS trailheads in Washington and Oregon with developed (toilet, picnic table) charge a user fee - this includes most trailheads in the Cascades and Olympics. A list of sites is here.

National Forest Recreation Day Pass: $5. Allows you to park at trailheads. You can purchase several day passes ahead of time and write the dates on them as you use them. The pass is available at National Forest offices and visitor centers, via private vendors or online. Note that WTA and some other vendors listed do not carry day passes.
Northwest Forest Pass: $30. An annual pass honored at all Forest Service day-use or entrance fee sites in Washington and Oregon. The pass is available at National Forest offices and visitor centers and via private vendors or online. Passes may also be purchased at the WTA office or via our online link.
Interagency Annual Pass: $80. This pass provides entrance to all Forest Service, national park and other federal site charging fees for one year. Purchase at a National Forest office or online - details are here.
Interagency Senior Pass: $10. This is the best deal around. This is a lifetime pass that is honored nationwide at any federal site charging entrance fees. Check out the details here.
Mount St. Helens National Monument: Mount St. Helens, managed by the USFS, charges on a per-person fee basis. Entry to the Coldwater or Johnson Ridge sites are $8 per person for those 16 and older (free for kids). They will honor Interagency Annual and Senior passes for named pass-holders, and a Northwest Forest Pass will gain entry for one person.
