We did the Wonderland trail to Summerland and Panhandle Gap. Great day hike. We had perfect weather, the views and flowers were stunning! Made us want to put the entire trail on our bucket list!

We only did about 10 miles of it -- both day hikes out of the National Park Inn including going up to Narada Falls. Great hikes. Very few people even though it was August.
