Following a two-year pilot program, Shenandoah National Park (SNP) will apply a permanent ticketing system to access Old Rag Mountain from March through November.

The system will improve visitor enjoyment, congestion on the trail and public safety, and better protect the environment and wildlife.

The permanent system will closely follow the pilot program. Beginning March 1, 2024, all visitors
are required to have a day-use ticket, in addition to a park entrance pass, to access the Old Rag area.

Day-use tickets for Old Rag Mountain for the 2024 season will be available starting February 17, 2024, at 10 a.m.

Tickets cost $2.00.

A total of 800 tickets will be available each day from March 1 to November 30, and 400 will be released 30 days in advance and the remaining 400 will be released five days in advance.

Tickets are valid for the day of arrival only and are not transferable.

A day-use ticket does not guarantee a parking spot.
