The fees will be collected from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. every day. Revenues will be used to pay for maintaining and improving the canyon's natural and recreational attractions.A 1992 canyon pass is available for $20. Senior citizens or physically handicapped people pay $1 per vehicle, or $10 for the annual pass. Canyon businesses provide validations for their customers.

The fee station first opened last year after Salt Lake County and the U.S. Forest Service forged a partnership dedicated to rehabilitating the damaged canyon, one of the most heavily used recreation areas in the state.
