America the Beautiful Pass

Does anyone know if this works for any of the places in Sedona? Do I still need a Red Rock Pass if I get an America the Beautiful pass? Can you buy an America the Beautiful pass in Sedona? I'm heading to Bryce & Zion after Sedona, so I want to have it before I get there if it's of value in Sedona. Otherwise, I'll buy it at the gates to Bryce.

Thanks! :)

Sounds like you had a good trip. How did you like Palatki? How were the roads? Did you take Dry Creek to Boynton Pass or Red Canyon?

BTW, for anyone that's interested, the Golden Eagle Pass has been replaced by the America the Beautiful Senior Pass. It's still $10, and is good for life.

America the Beautiful Pass is purchased through the National Parks Service and allows your car into any National Forest or National Park for free for one year. The Red Rocks Pass is a pass I believe that gets you into the Coconino National Forrest around Sedona and can be purchased as a daily or weekly pass. If you are going to multiple national parks or forests in a year, buy the America the Beautiful Pass.

We used an America the Beautiful Pass last week. It probably paid for itself. I need to add up everything we used it for.

We were not allowed to use it to hike Oak Creek Canyon West Fork trail. There are signs all over that say it is National Forest, but the "rude" person at the booth said no, because this is "special, blah, blah, blah"

If you are only visiting one national park or monument, then it is better to just purchase the admission at the Grand Canyon. I think it is $25 for a 7 day pass per car.

Have a great trip.
