ColoradoNational Monumentto Waive Entrance Fee on

National Public Lands Day


All National Park Service sites, including Colorado National Monument, will offer free visitor admission on Saturday, September 27, in honor of National Public Lands Day. All Entrance fees, including commercial tour entrance fees and transportation entrance fees, will be waived on this day. Normally, a seven-day pass to Colorado National Monument is normally $7 for a private, non-commercial vehicle.


In celebration of National Public Lands Day, Colorado National Monument will host a “Family Fun Ranger-Guided Hike” for children aged 5 – 12 year olds accompanied by parents or guardians. Together, the group will participate in a scavenger hunt, learn about animal signs and tracks, put those skills to use on the trail, and create a nature craft to take home. The meeting location is at the Devils Kitchen Picnic Area (near the East Entrance), from 10:00 am to noon. For additional information call the Visitor Center at 858-3617, 360.
