We never know the path others are traveling

r If you are 62 or older and enjoy visiting our National Parks and Forest fee area you are entitled to purchase a life time annual pass at a bargain price that allows free access. If you don’t already have a pass you should buy it before August 28, 2019, after that date the price of the senior pass will increase from $10 to $80. For seniors on a fixed income, it is a significant increase. If you already have a senior pass, it is a lifetime pass and is grandfathered in.

The life time senior pass is now called the America the Beautiful-National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Senior Pass. My older pass, which is still valid, was called a Golden Age Passport. The pre-purchased pass provides access to more than 2,000 sites managed by six federal agencies. The August 28 price increase is the first since 1994.
