The USFS utilizes the Notice of Non-Compliance (NNC) to persuade forest users to pay the daily fee when they failed to display an Adventure Pass. The NNC helps the USFS to improve fee compliance and avoid overburdening the court system with Violation Notices (VN). Over 300,000 Adventure Passes were issued in 2008, with 40,000 NNCs being issued for the S.Cal region, resulting in the collection of $120,000 from retroactive payments by forest users that received the NNC. According to 2008 data, 72% of NNC recipients pay the daily fee. Just another tool the USFS is utilizing to charge you to use public lands you already own and pay taxes to support.

I believe the fine has gone up to $15.
Adventure Pass was $30 for the year ($5 for an additional pass that allows you to park two cars next to one another) as of Feburary 2015

We're no longer receiving tickets when we park there (as of 2015), and we never paid them anyway, being very opposed to paying twice for use of National Forest land--first, through taxes, then through a fee. A judge ruled against the legality of charging fines on NF land just for parking, i.e., no amenities at the site:

At any rate, we've been told that there's no money for enforcement of the law, anyway. For our part, we simply make sure to not only not leave garbage ourselves, but to pick up after others. Good citizenship trumps a parking fee in my book.

Can confirm you won't get a ticket. I've been coming here for about 4 years parking in that same spot. Before I climbed I would go night hiking here, and since climbing for the past year I've never gotten a ticket.

You will get a ticket. However, it is only $5 to pay. Send check in envelope supplied.
