LIfeTime National Park Senior Passes
Rising To $80 Sometime in 2017
The Grand Canyon National Park
Seniors age 62 and up can purchase a lifetime “America the Beautiful” pass for only $10. However that price is going up. President Obama signed the National Park Service Centennial Act into law on his way out of office in 2016. So the price of the America the Beautiful Lifetime pass for Seniors aged 62 and up will be rising 700% !
How This Affects Sedona
In some areas of the Red Rock Country you need to display a Red Rock Pass when you park your vehicle. Any interagency America the Beautiful Pass will also be accepted. the Grand Canyon is pictured above, but it is not the only place you can use an lifetime senior pass. Besides Red Rock Country, National Monuments accept the pass. Montezuma’s Castle and V-Bar-V Heritage Site also accept the pass.
Currently, you can go to the Red Rock Ranger District and Visitor Contact Center to purchase any pass you may need.
