Some Utahns Are Concerned About This Proposed Change At 2 Gorgeous Canyons

Big and Little Cottonwood Canyons are some of Utah’s most beautiful canyons. Both have numerous hiking trails, picnic areas, campgrounds, lakes and amenities such as restrooms. These canyons are incredibly popular with Utahns – between 5 and 6 million people visit each year.

The U.S. Forest Service is proposing a $6-per-car fee for both canyons, which would be valid for three days. The fees will apply to only some day-use visitors. Read on to learn more about the Forest Service’s proposal.

What do you think? Is it worth $6 to visit these canyons for the day?
