Muir Woods National Monument Fee Increase Effective January 1
In April 2018, the National Park Service (NPS) announced that Muir Woods National Monument would be one of the 115 fee-charging national parks to modestly increase entrance fees. Effective January 1, 2019, the entrance fees to the park will be $15 per person (an increase from $10) and an annual park pass will cost $45. These changes come in response to public comments on a fee proposal released in October 2017.
National parks have experienced record breaking visitation, with more than 1.5 billion visitors in the last five years. Throughout the country, the combination of an aging infrastructure and increased visitation have put a strain on park roads, bridges, campgrounds, waterlines, bathrooms, and other visitor services. The increased entrance fees will raise additional revenue to address the $11.6 billion in maintenance backlog across the system of 418 parks, historic and cultural sites, and monuments.
