If you're only going to be visiting national parks on this one trip, and not at any other time over the course of a year, then you'll need to figure out the individual entrance fees for each applicable national park/rec area you plan to visit.  If they add up to $80 or more, then the pass is worth it.  For example Zion is $25/private vehicle for up to 7 days, Bryce is the same. Those 2 parks already bring you to $50.  Capitol Reef scenic drive is $5/7 days, Glen Canyon National Rec Area (Wahweap area) is $15/7 days, Arches and Canyonlands are each $10/7 days, but I read an article that there's a proposal to raise each to $25.  FYI, Monument Valley does not accept this pass.

You can use the National Park pass all over the country for 1 year, so if you're potentially planning a weekend trip to the Great Smokey Mountains from Georgia for example, you could use it there too.
