A pass covers entrance and standard amenity fees for a driver and all passengers in a personal vehicle at per vehicle fee areas (or up to four adults at sites that charge per person).

MRCA Annual Parking Pass
(Mountains Recreation and Conservation Authority)
Valid for one year.
5-Day Permit $300
7-Day Permit $450
The MRCA parking pass covers parking at the following properties:
Temescal Gateway Park, Red Rock Canyon Park, Happy Camp Canyon Regional Park, Wilacre Park, Marvin Braude Mulholland Gateway Park, Ed Davis Park in Towsley Canyon, East Canyon, Mentryville, Summit Valley Edmund D. Edelman Park, Whitney Canyon Park, Wilson Canyon Park, Rocky Peak Park, Bosque del Rio Hondo, Sage Ranch Park, Corral Canyon Park, Upper Las Virgenes Canyon Open Space Preserve, Michael D. Antonovich Regional Park at Joughin Ranch.
The day use fee for parking at these trailheads can range from $3 to $5. Free off-site parking is usually inconveniently located. Unless you plan to park at one of these properties daily it may be more economical to pay the day-use fee as needed, but purchasing the annual pass is a wonderful way to support the conservation of the spaces you love while also receiving the benefit of prepaid on-demand permit only parking.
