FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) - Entrance fees at the Flagstaff-area national monuments are going up starting Oct. 1.

The increase applies to Sunset Crater Volcano, Walnut Canyon and Wupatki national monuments.

Visitors will pay $8 for a seven-day pass at Walnut Canyon, up from $5.

Wupatki and Sunset Crater Volcano have been charging $5 per person, regardless of whether tourists drive, bike or walk in. The new fee structure will be $20 per vehicle for a seven-day pass good for both monuments, $10 for pedestrians and $15 for motorcyclists.

An annual pass for all three monuments will be $40, up from $25.

Officials say the increased revenue will help pay for things like trail maintenance, exhibits, water systems and ranger-led programs.
