  • Walked the trail up to the top. The first 6 or so miles are nice and relaxing. The rest of the way to the top is much more strenuous but very doable. At the top we took time to eat a backpack lunch an...  more »

  • Beautiful park. For the May long weekend someone of the trails weren't cleaned up of fallen trees yet, which actually added to our experience of nature. Rangers were extremely helpful. Plenty of deer around. Camping sites had very little privacy. No phone signals.
  • Staff were friendly and helpful. Showers and bathrooms we clean. Park was well maintained. Lots of wildlife. Will definately make the trek back up
  • Didn't meet my expectations. Maybe I had high expectations. But good for hiking. If you can visit Kekabeka Falls if you can.
  • Fantastic hiking! Found a trail down to the shoreline and jumped into the water. The hike was pretty tough at places, be sure to have real hiking boots and pants. Lots of climbing over fallen trees!
  • Great views. Super buggy. The animals while cute were way too friendly.
