timed-entry - Arches National Park (U.S. National Park Service)
After reviewing comments from members of the public, stakeholders, and elected officials, the NPS determined that a temporary timed entry pilot could help Arches proactively pace visitation into the park.
I guess something like this had to happen at some point with how crazy the lines get there. Looks like Dead Horse Point and Island in the Sky will probably get more and more of the Arches spillover until they put in permit systems there too.
I wonder how many more parks are going to see stuff like this implemented in the next few years.
Edit: just noticed this topic was brought up in another thread before I posted this.
