Visit Yosemite National Park without an entrance fee this weekend

Yosemite National Park will not charge an entrance fee to visitors Saturday and Sunday, Superintendent Don Neubacher announced Thursday.

The fee-free weekend is in celebration of National Trails Day, intended to inspire hikers to seek out their favorite trails on public lands.

Other free-admittance days planned are August 14-15, September 25 (Public Lands Day), and November 11 (Veterans Day).
