and go ‘Grand’
Grand Canyon National Park will be joining national park units across the country in offering fee free entry to the park on Saturday, June 9, in honor of National Get Outdoors Day.
Grand Canyon National Park regularly offers a variety of ranger-guided programs that provide healthy outdoor activity, including the Cedar Ridge Hike, Geology Walk, Fossil Walk and Guided Bicycle Tours on the South Rim, as well as Nature Walks on the North Rim. Visitors are encouraged to take advantage of these opportunities on Get Outdoors Day and any other day they visit.
Visitors who arrive in the park on June 9, will be allowed to enter the park free of charge. Those who plan to spend time in the park beyond that day will need to pay the regular entrance fee for the remainder of their stay.
Park visitors are reminded that the fee-free designation applies to entrance fees only and does not affect fees for camping, reservations, tours, or use of concessions. Park entrance stations will have Interagency Senior and Annual Passes available for those who wish to purchase them.
Fee free days still to come in 2012 will include: Sept. 29 (National Public Lands Day) and Nov. 10–12 (Veterans Day weekend).
