  • What an amazing NP. The rangers were beyond amazing and helpful. The views are absolutely stunning. The silence is incredible. Short easy hikes ro some of the most amazing sights and views ever. So worth every second of your time. Get a back country permit when then open 4 months ahead of time or you will probably get closed out. Murphy zone was awesome!
  • The staff are super helpful and happy to help despite the crowds. The facility isn't the top of the line, typical of government overspending, but that's what made me happy to be there. They help you enjoy the park not the multi-million dollar visitor center. They have us directions, what places were the best for little kids, the sunset, and really took care of us.
