Peaceful trails and a wonderful place to visit! There are cabins and campsites, available for rent, as well. The park rangers can give you a map of the trails and offer a certificate for when you cover each and every trail in the park!

The trails are lovely, with many interpretive panels, some ruins, footbridges, and clear trail markings. There are also many camps set up with washrooms, bunkhouses, and mess halls.

This is a wonderful that offers the opportunity to hike, camp and explore in a setting that allows you to experience natures wonders. There is an entry fee and it's minimal $5.00, well worth it.
