The season pass will cost $80 for a primary vehicle and up to two OHVs. Additional OHVs can be added to the season pass for $20 per vehicle. The weekly pass will cost $5 for the primary vehicle and $10 per OHV. Season passes are also available at the BLM – Hollister Field Office, Monday through Friday, from 7:30 am to 4:00 pm.
