First allow plenty of time to just be in this awesome place. Take in the air, feel it on your skin. Now, get yourself off any concrete or pavement and walk among the forest trees and ferns. How does the ground feel? This is a difficult place to describe, more like experience. So, I will just say - Go and... More

Beautiful National Park! From the rain forests, to peaceful lakes, to the view on Hurricane Ridge. Plan to spend some time and don't rush.

You drive through in your car and feed the animals bread. The llamas are very friendly - they will run next to your car as you move along the path!

A very helpful ranger spent a lot of time with us enthusing about the great hiking options in the park. We really appreciated her knowledge and recommendations.
