The hiking trails are moderately difficult. It's not for small kids or the elderly. The views are fantastic!

Blonde " park ranger" tries her hardest to make sure you never return. Watch out she likes to show her athouratie! As said on South Park. AVOID! She will try to get you for picking up a few sticks to start a fire!

The part of the park we were at was extremely busy(there are two entrances to this park). It could have been because it was Labor Day weekend. The parking lot was full at times we were there and people were still looking for parking spots....More
