Fee Free MLK Day for Visitors to Los Padres National Forest
Los Padres National Forest officials today announced that January 20 has been designated as a "Fee Free
Day" for visitors to the forest. In all areas of the forest where an Adventure Pass is normally required, the
fee will be waived in celebration of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.
An Adventure Pass is typically required for day use activities and camping at many recreational facilities in
the Forest. This "Fee Free Day" applies to all Adventure Pass areas except the Lower Santa Ynez Recreation
Area on the Santa Barbara Ranger District, where the fee remains in effect. Other fees such as reservation
fees and group site fees will also still apply. Forest visitors who unknowingly validate a daily Adventure Pass
on January 20 can have the pass replaced free of charge at most Forest Service offices.
"It is appropriate to honor Martin Luther King, Jr., by waiving the Adventure Pass on what would have been
his 85th birthday this year," said Los Padres Forest Supervisor Peggy Hernandez. "This is a great
opportunity to spend time on the Forest and enjoy the natural wonders of our public lands."
