Zion National Park accepting applications for hiking permits at Angels Landing
SPRINGDALE, Utah – The National Park Service started accepting applications Monday for hiking permits at Angels Landing this spring.
The hiking permits will be valid from April 1 through May 31. Another lottery was planned for later this year for those who will hike Angels Landing after June 1.
“We expect many visitors will want to apply for a permit, so we took care to make our process accessible, flexible, and fair.” Superintendent Jeff Bradybaugh said. “Lotteries were the right fit for Angels Landing because they give certainty about application periods and flexibility so that people can fill out the application when it’s convenient for them.”
Signing up for the lottery will cost $6 and hikers who actually get a permit will pay an additional $3 fee.
Today is the day! If you’re planning to hike to Angels Landing between April 1 and May 31, apply to our Seasonal Lottery for a permit. You can apply any time before 11:59p.m. MT on January 20. https://t.co/WejDXBUiqA
