My son and I camped here at the end of August/ beginning of September. It was a fantastic experience. We managed at least two trails per day. We really enjoyed the Top of the Giant trail. The view was breathtaking. We will return!

Two hours is not enough if planing to stop at the provincial park sleeping Gian. Many trails , but takes hours to walk and see the wonders of the place , Mount mackey would be a better destination for a short stop.
