The Catwalk National Scenic Trail and
Whitewater Picnic Ground
You are here
Starting in March, 2000 visitors to the Catwalk National Recreational Trail will be charged entrance fees.
The Catwalk Fee Demonstration Management Plan will begin once the Forest Service builds a collection booth. Fees have been set as follows:
* $3 per vehicle per day;
* $10 per commercial tour vehicle (small vans carrying fewer than 15 passengers); and
* $10 annual fee.
There will be no fees charged the first day of every month. Students and other educational groups will get in free anytime.
An annual pass will be available to "Friends of the Catwalk" -- anyone volunteering at least eight hours of service. The work could range from site cleanup to natural history talks.
The fee demonstration project was designed to offset dwindling budgets to national parks and forests. Under the program, 80 percent of the money goes for site improvements; 15 percent goes to offset local administration costs; and 5 percent goes to the regional office.
