The 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. To view
