I can only imagine what this looks like it fall, spring, or summer. We went in winter so there were few people in the park. The views were spectacular and it was just a cool place to visit.

I liked how u could drive at your leisure and did not feel like you had to rush the whole drive.Plus there were many places you could stop and get out and take pictures.

Very pretty drive along the mountains. It did start to seem a little the same after a while. There were a lot of hiking trails we would have liked to try, but it was a little cold when we were there.

The Park was not far from where we were staying. We visited parts of two days. The drive was quite scenic. Saw lots of deer. With no leaves on the trees the views were continual. Does not compare to the coast of Maine or the Sothwest.

I can not wait to go back, we stayed at the nicest hotel on sky line drive. No tvs, just radio and it only had a few channels. Very romantic place, the food there was... More
