Commercial Use Authorization (CUA) (also known as Outfitter Guide/Permits with the U.S. Forest Service) are required for engaging in any business within the park. Examples include guided bicycle tours, photography workshops, hiking and rock climbing activities. Please read Commercial Use Authorization - Guidelines, Requirements, Fees, and Application before submitting an application. We also ask that you submit a CUA Annual Report.
