The cost to visit Zion National Park will increase 25 percent to $25 per car, starting Jan. 1. It's the first fee increase since 2000. Bicyclists, motorcyclists and pedestrians, 16 years or older, will pay $12, a $2 or 20 percent increase. Both fees are good for seven days.
On Jan. 1, the government will also start selling the $80 America the Beautiful pass, good for entry to federal recreation sites across the country for one year.
