  • Peaceful trails and a wonderful place to visit! There are cabins and campsites, available for rent, as well. The park rangers can give you a map of the trails and offer a certificate for when you cove...  more »
  • The trails are lovely, with many interpretive panels, some ruins, footbridges, and clear trail markings. There are also many camps set up with washrooms, bunkhouses, and mess halls. 
  • This is a wonderful that offers the opportunity to hike, camp and explore in a setting that allows you to experience natures wonders. There is an entry fee and it's minimal $5.00, well worth it.

  • So beautiful! The South Valley Trail is a great hike or run. I ran it and must say it does have some challenging areas, uphill, downhill, roots and rocks, but great challenge! A must run! The trail is 9 miles but you don't have to run the whole time. Lots of Briggs and running water. I plan to adventure this whole park. The trail is located within Prince Williams National Park.
  • Wow! First off I was quite surprised by this park. I originally went there looking to get some shots of fallen trees but quickly ditched that effort for a good hike. The park is gorgeous. It will make short work of mind heavy things, in other words the day to day drama. It's transforming in ways but simplistic. It doesn't offer the views of rhe Rockies or the Grand Canyon though it's the tranquility of rushing water just takes you away. It's the quietness of the trees that send you to another place. I'm better for the trip and will be back again soon.
  • I can't count the hours I've spent in different parts of this park over the past 20 years. I've dealt with many rangers and site hosts here; most of whom have been super awesome and will even tell you some history of the camp if you ask. I've run into one or two that weren't so friendly, but they are rare. The park has great event spaces and awesome hiking trails. It's a great and convenient place to get out into nature.
  • Amazing park! Really beautiful, with multiple levels of trail difficulty. Bring bug spray though, got seriously bit up.
  • This park is gorgeous! So many trails and serene. Clean! Pet friendly. Great for a day of hiking, relaxing, picnic, large open field to run around out sir under a tree and read. Very pleasant and plenty of space for there to be many people but not feel crowded.
