The best Black Friday deal around might well be far outside the mall. You can snag a free pass to one of 116 California state parks if you want to hike rather than shop on Nov. 25.

The conservation organization Save the Redwoods League teamed up with the California State Parks Foundation and California State Parks to offer free day-use passes — while they last — to parks around the state.

That means you can save $12 in parking fees at places like Will Rogers State Historic Park in Los Angeles and Leo Carrillo State Park in Malibu on Black Friday.

Here’s how it works: Go to the #GreenFriday website and select a park you want to visit. Enter your email address and then print out a pass (based on availability) that you’ll need to display on your dashboard. The offer is limited to one pass per email, and it’s good for one day only (Black Friday).
