Veterans Day is Saturday, Nov. 11, and national parks will waive admission fees Nov. 11-12. These are the last of 10 free-admission days in 2017.

National forests that charge day-use fees also are waiving them.

On Nov. 11, Tonto National Forest is waiving its Tonto Pass requirement at recreation sites along the Salt and Verde rivers and Apache, Bartlett, Canyon, Roosevelt and Saguaro lakes.

In Sedona, the Red Rock Ranger District of Coconino National Forest is waiving fees at several locations Nov. 10-12.

Visitors can get free admission to the Palatki, Honanki and V Bar V heritage sites, and the Red Rock Pass requirement is waived at multiple trailheads. Fees still apply at ampgrounds and recreation sites managed by concessionaires (such as Grasshopper Point, Crescent Moon Ranch and West Fork).

The Red Rock District will also waive fees on Thanksgiving and Christmas.
