  • It's beautiful but definitely not a place to enjoy nature absent development. There is a lot of history, in the area, to learn about and it is interesting but there are lots of visitors, regulations, and it costs $5 per vehicle. The trail was very easy and my kids enjoyed the walk but we'll probably stick to visiting more rugged and free recreational areas which are plentiful in the region.
  • Friendly rangers. Nice visitor center. Excellent trails. Beautiful scenery. Something for everybody. Pet friendly within reason. Some places dogs are not allowed. I can understand why because some don't clean up after their dog.
