National Parks Senior Pass Price Increase Imminent

One of the greatest travel deals of the past two decades is about to expire! If you are over the age of 62, you need to head to the closest National Park – which for many of you is Zion National Park – and purchase the Lifetime Interagency Senior Pass. This pass gets you unlimited access to all National Parks and Monuments – including Bryce Canyon, Grand Canyon, Grand Staircase and Zion – at no additional cost!

Since 1994, the National Park Service has offered these passes to seniors for just $10! That is a one time purchase for the rest of their lives! This deal is still available until August 27, 2017. On August 28, the price increases to $80 – which is still a great deal, but not anything like the current pricing.

The increased pricing is intended to help pay for park upgrades and other enhancements that will improve the visitor experience.

For more information about the passes provided by the National Park Service, check out their website.  You can also purchase passes online for an additional $10.

HikeStGeorge is a project that began as a seedling for Tim LeBaron in the early part of 2008, but really didn’t begin to blossom until the latter part of 2011. The original idea behind the site was to bring to light all of the harder to find, or “less known” hidden gems of the area. It was more of a pet project than anything. As excitement about the site began to spread, there was more of a push to develop information about all hikes in the Southern Utah Region.
