Canyonlands National Park Seeks Public Input on Proposed Day-Use Permits for Elephant Hill and White Rim Roads

Date: March 16, 2015
Contact: Kevin Moore, 435-719-2120

The National Park Service is seeking public comment on a proposal to require permits for all motor vehicle and bicycle day use on the White Rim and Elephant Hill roads in Canyonlands National Park.

Requiring permits for day use on these increasingly popular roads will help the park better protect resources and the visitor experience in these wild and remote locations.

For the White Rim Road, a total of 50 day-use vehicle permits (including motorcycles) and 50 day-use bicycle permits will be issued each day. Group size will be limited to three vehicles and 15 bicycles.

A total of 24 day-use vehicle permits (including motorcycles) and 12 day-use bicycle permits will be issued each day for the Elephant Hill Road. Group size will be limited to three vehicles and 12 bicycles.

Each motor vehicle and individual bicycle will need a permit.

No fee will be charged for these day-use permits during the 2015-2016 seasons. Payment of the park entrance fee is required for day use and will be collected with permits issued online or at the time of entrance to the park for walk-in permits.Annual Passes, Military Passes, Senior Passes, and Access Passes will be honored for entrance.

Comments regarding this day-use permit proposal may be submitted electronically on the NPS Planning, Environment, and Public Comment (PEPC) website at: If comments are not able to be made via the PEPC website they may be sent to: National Park Service, Southeast Utah Group, Attn: Planning and Compliance Coordinator, 2282 S.
