April 19 is Free Day at WA State Parks

Interested in doing some biking or hiking in a Washington State Park but lack a Discover Pass? No worries. Saturday, April 19 is a “free day” for day use activities at WA State Parks. This is your opportunity to use hiking and biking trails in our state parks. This includes trailhead parking at the Iron Horse/John Wayne Trail, the Columbia Plateau Trail, the Centennial Trail in Spokane.

The Discover Pass, a $30 annual or $10 one-day permit, is usually required to use recreation lands managed by WA State Parks, WA Department of Fish and Wildlife, and the Department of National Resources. The April 19 free day applies to State Parks only. Other planned 2014 state park free days include:

  • April 22 – Earth Day
  • May 11 – spring Sunday free day
  • June 7-8 – National Trails Day and Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife Free Fishing Weekend
  • June 14 – National Get Outdoors Day
  • August 25 – National Park Service birthday
  • September 27 – National Public Lands Day
  • November 11 – Veterans Day
