Fee Free Days in Celebration of National Parks Week
On Saturday April 19 and Sunday April 20, All National Parks including Pinnacles will waive entrance fees. In addition, Western National Park Association Sales in visitor centers of the park will be discounted by 15%
On Friday, August 28, Superintendent Eric Brunnemann closed the park’s west side and all backcountry trails to regular staff and all visitors. “Due to the proximity and potential danger of the Gloria Fire burring into the park’s west side, I am compelled to temporarily close these areas of the park to insure the safety of our visitors and staff” Brunnemann explained. “We are working closely with Cal Fire and will be reassessing these closures each day,” Brunnemann continued.
