The Visitor Center and all public areas including the Last Spike Site, East and West Auto Tours and the Big Fill Hike trail are open to the public.
While the listed areas are accessible for visitors to enjoy, services may be unexpectedly limited. When recreating, please follow local area health orders via the NPS Public Health Update (U.S. National Park Service) and recreate responsibly by keeping social distance, wearing a face covering when social distance cannot be maintained, avoiding high risk activities, and staying home if you feel sick.
Private, non-commercial vehicle: $20
When recreating, the public are required to follow current health guidance, including wearing face coverings, and are recommended to physical distance, frequently hand wash, and avoid crowding in both indoor and outdoor settings. The CDC has offered guidance to help people recreating in parks and open spaces prevent the spread of infectious diseases. Visitors are encouraged to follow CDC suggestions for mitigating risks associated with the transmission of COVID-19 and are responsible for taking appropriate precautions to protect their own health. Operations may be modified, and services may be limited as needed for public health and safety.
Depending on the season, the weather can be unpredictable in the Promontory mountains. Please check the forecast before you travel to the park. Packing sunscreen, plenty of water, bug spray, and layers of clothing is suggested if you plan on being outdoors.
