Great for Hiking or Mountain Biking, or Lodging as well, nice and clean Park with a trail even great for Runners. Lots of Nature and fresh air- just what the Doctor ordered!

We spent a day exploring and it was well worth every minute. The entire park is gorgeous. The man working in the ranger booth was very helpful and funny

Visited this park twice the week of 31 Mar - 04 Apr, and found the Lodge restaurant and the gift shop in the Lodge closed both times. I tried calling the number for the park, but got no answer.

The park is beautiful and clean. The trails are so easy to use because they are so well-maintained. I enjoyed the easy access to other parts of the park from our cabin. We did not have to drive to get to most of the trailheads.

Today was a touring for Water Falls day and this falls is worth your walk. The walkway is STEEP with warning signs for snakes (so stay on the path).These are pretty falls and worth the walk, . . but you do get lots of exercise.

We enjoyed the crisp clean mountain air, the hiking trails and the beauty of water falls and the lake. This is a great place to relax.
