What is an Adventure Pass?
It's a recreation pass for visitors
using the Angeles, Cleveland, Los Padres and San Bernardino National Forests.
The Pass will be displayed on the visitor's vehicle.
Visitors can purchase either a day pass ($5) or annual pass ($30).

Who will need to purchase a
All Forest visitors will be required
to display the Pass in their vehicles when parked on the Forest for recreational
purposes. You will not need a Pass when your are traveling through
the Forest but not stopping, when your are parked at your residence or
at an organization camp/resort, or in an area covered by a site specific
use fee. For example site fees are already being charged
at campgrounds and ski resorts. Therefore an Adventure Pass
would not be required.
A Pass is not required for people
stopping for information at the Ranger Stations, visitor centers and other
Forest Service offices, or for off-road vehicles with green sticker registration.
Educational institutions, such as schools that bring children to the Forest
for outing, are also exempt.
How will the fees be used?
Traditionally, fees collected are
returned to the US Treasury. In this pilot program, at least
80% of the funds collected will be returned to the local Forest for invested
in maintaining an improving recreation sites and facilities, an in protecting
the Forest resource and habitat. Most importantly you will
have a say in how the money should be spent. With both the daily
and annual pass is a questionnaire to allow visitors to tell the Forest
how the money should be spent and comments about the pilot program.
