  • Truly a national treasure. Easily accessible to all. From the most adventurous outdoor enthusiast to anyone just driving through. A must visit national park. One could spend an entire vacation exploring the park or simply pass-through it on their way to their final destination. If you are passing through you need to stop at the Newfound Gap and take it in. Once you do, I'm betting you will want to plan a longer layover to fully experience this great park. That's what happened to us, and we were not disappointed with the return trip.
  • Goodness gracious, if you haven't been here before, you're missing out. Short of Rocky Mountain National, this park is among the prettiest I've ever seen, with an abundance of hikes for all skill levels. Lots of waterfalls for people (like myself) who love them. Porters Creek and Ramsey Cascades are two favorites. The visitors centers are well maintained, and staff are knowledgeable and friendly.
