Martin Luther King Jr. Day will be a good day to explore the outdoors, with free admission offered to many public lands.
The National Park Service will commemorate the day and King’s legacy with free admission. It is one of four free days in 2018 for parks that usually charge admission or require a pass.
The Bureau of Land Management will waive day-use fees for the day, the first of five free days it will offer this year.
The U.S. Forest Service also will waive fees for many picnic areas, boat launches, trailheads and visitor centers on Monday.
