How to comment

The U.S. Forest Service is accepting public comment on its revised recreational fee programs for American Fork Canyon and Mirror Lake. Comments should be emailed by July 31 to dresare@fs.fed.us for American Fork and to vdaniel@fs.fed.us for Mirror Lake.

Under programs in place since 1997, visitors pay $6 per vehicle in the canyon or along the Mirror Lake highway. The fee is good for three days. A $12 pass is good for a week and a $45 pass covers a year at both areas. The changes require visitors to display the pass when they park at developed trailheads and other sites. Details can be found at the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest website, http://1.usa.gov/16QlUsg.
