SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Next time you visit Capitol Reef National Park you could have to pay more to enjoy the scenic views.

Under a proposed plan, vehicle entry fees could double from $5 to $10. Entry fees for pedestrians and bicyclists would increase from $3 to $5 per person under the plan.

National Park Service officials say the hike would help pay for park improvements and projects to improve visitor services.

The public comment period on the increase will end on Monday. If it's approved, the hike will take effect January 1, 2008.
