Extremely useful literature on the area which you can pick up without being bothered but also 3/4 counters where you can queue (not too long) to get more specific details. We were given excellent advice on day hiking. Do visit to make the most of your trip - very knowledgeable and friendly staff!

The volunteers were very helpful in answering our questions and helping us identify good birding areas. They also helped us book a cabin for 2 days.
