Each year, the Red Rock Ranger District of the Coconino National Forest waives fees associated with many recreation sites and amenities to celebrate national holidays and events.

On "fee-free" days, fees are waived for all Red Rock Pass Fee Program sites including Honanki, Palatki, and V Bar V heritage sites. Please note the heritage sites are closed on Thanksgiving and Christmas days.
