Your Trip. Your Way.
This Pacific Northwest Forest Day Pass offers a convenient way to explore Oregon and Washington’s National Forest areas that are managed by the Forest Service. Simply write in the date that you will use the pass clearly with a pen, display it on your dashboard, and it will be good for all standard amenities for that day until Midnight for all passengers of a single vehicle.
