  • I went for a hike with friends along this trail during vacation this past summer and it was amazing! I would highly recommend bringing some bug spray because there are many mosquitoes as the walk is in the middle of the woods and can last for up to 10 hours, but it is mind boggling beautiful. You can even climb the giant itself, over 700 feet high. When you look over the edge at the top you can barely even tell how far the ground truly is because it all blends into a beautiful forest surrounded by a wall of rocky mountain. Will definitely return!
  • Very beautiful place. I couldn't believe that many people don't know about this place. It's a natural environment classified park and it's amazing. Clean facilities. Great for families. Great for hiking, biking, walking. Friendly staff. 10 out of 10
  • What an amazing experience. The landscape leading up to the park was even stunning. Watch for a fox & deer in the campgrounds who are -clearly- in cahoots in their scavenging... we witnessed them maneuvre unnoticed between a few campsites- definite teamwork though! They need names.
  • Absolutely gorgeous.. I was here in autumn.. would love to see it during summer!
  • I always do the sleeping giant loppet there. It is a GREAT race. I have never been there in the summer.
