When a national monument gains “national park” status, are they guaranteed to receive an immediate boost in attendance in the following years?
Is there such thing as a “National Park Effect?”
What will happen with attendance at the nation's newest National Parks in the next few years?
We attempt to answer the question.
Born of erosion from a volcano on the San Andreas fault, Pinnacles National Park is an imposing rock formation in California. The high peaks of the park rise over 3,000 feet from the surrounding landscape in a way that could only happen through thousands of years of tectonic movement.
What was created from movement along the San Andreas Fault attracts hikers and rock climbers from all over the world.
