Beautiful views to see. We did not hike the whole park, but we did small hikes through different spots we wanted to see. We would go again.

This was a great place to stop after visiting the aerial tram on Cannon Mountain. We opted for the bus to take us to the Notch which cut out about 40 minutes of hiking. Very reasonable. Nice people

Flume gorge is a must see. Beautiful hike next to river that runs over granite leads to narrowing path through granite walls and Avalanche falls.

I've only been there once in the fall. Not sure about snow cover and when that would be gone. As far as mud, I wouldn't think there would be so much as there is so much granite. The trails in the park are exquisite. There... More
