Please check if the Golden Eagle Pass is sufficient for parking along the road. I suspect that it is, and if so, mentioning that in your write-up would save some folks some hard-earned Social Security check.

Thanks!

You know something? I have looked into that very question. I had a whole bunch of rangers scrambling for an answer. The answer was a definitive NO. I was hoping that Golden Eagle would take care of it, but unfortunately it doesn't. A few years ago I was climbing on the "Crag Full of Dynamite" and a ranger pulled up to see if I had a pass.
When I showed him the Golden Eagle he confirmed that it would not do. I apologized and he left me alone.

If you checked a few years ago, then the story may have changed by now. It has to do with the "permanentization" of the #@$% Fee Demo Program.

If you have checked recently, thanks.

I know Golden Eagle is now accepted in lieu of day parking pass at: Tahquitz Rock; Parking area for the Mace in Sedona; Roadside parking in the San Bernardino mountains; Trailhead parking for Liberty Bell, Early Winters Spires, etc., etc.

Thanks for the response!

No, I haven't checked recently. If what you are saying holds true for my area then I have been robbed in the tune of $30 just recently. I will call the forest service to see what they say. If the Golden Eagle card is good, I will make the the necessary changes
to my page.
Thanks for bringing this matter to my attention.
