Pick up your Claremont Loop parking permits

Parking permits for the Claremont Hills Wilderness Park are now available at Claremont City Hall and the Alexander Hughes Community Center.  

Annual permits will cost hikers $75 each. Claremont residents may obtain a maximum of 2 free passes by presenting an id or utility bill. Permits will be required once the expanded north lot opens. City Manager Tony Ramos said the lot is expected to open in early March should weather permit.

City Hall is located at 207 Harvard Ave. The Hughes Center is at 1700 Danbury Rd. For more information, call the city at 399-5460.


  1. This is really lame. I must've missed all the talk about this but I think this was a bad call Claremont.

  2. Whatever happened to land of the free?

  3. They even blocked off the PUBLIC street parking on Mount Baldy Street and other parts. So even with the new larger parking they now have less parking than they did before. Very inefficient. Claremont residents can get a free permit, so everyone else is suppose to pay $75 a year only to arrive each visit and still not find parking!? Just to screw neighbors for money.

  4. If Claremont is going to charge non-residents for parking, neighboring cities should do the same when opening new shopping centers and housing! Upland get on board!!

  5. That fee is ludicrous! What is all that revenue paying for? Cover the construction cost of the new parking lot? Up keep of the extravagant portapotties? I think it is only time until Rc builds a parking lot and does the same.
