  • The spring is amazing, beautiful, and worth the hype. The nearby 1.8-mile loop trail (no longer marked as a loop, but you can go up the hill from the Slough Trail and all the way around to the other side of the spring) covers a variety of terrain and is worth your time. I had the whole park nearly to myself, as the lodge and cabins are still closed. I hope that the National Park Service will have sufficient funding to begin renovation of these historic structures soon.
  • Had family in that area and would visit every year when I was young. Fast forward 30 yrs and when in the area, always make time to visit and relive some childhood memories. Great place to spend the day.
