Adventure Pass


Adventure PassThe National Forest Adventure Pass was developed to assist the four National Forests in Southern California -- Angeles, San Bernardino, Los Padres and Cleveland -- in keeping with your ever growing recreation demands. 

This program allows the forest to collect fees in the form of a recreation use pass, available for daily or yearly purchase and reinvest 80% of those fees in your favorite recreation areas on the forests. 

The pass is designed to be displayed in your vehicle while parked for recreation purposes in a High Impact Recreation Area. Effective June 2005, some more remote areas of the forests do not require purchase of an Adventure Pass. Please note that certains locations such as campgrounds may require payment of a special fee.

Adventure Passes are on sale at local vendors and the following Forest Service locations:

  • San Gabriel River Ranger District District Office (in Glendora)
  • Mt. Baldy VIS
  • "The Gateway" (San Gabriel Entrance Station)
  • San Gabriel Canyon OHV area.
