This is one of my favorites. I love hiking here with my dog. The rangers are so friendly and helpful. The bathrooms are clean and well maintained. The trails are well marked and the beauty is breathtaking. It is one of the most stunning places I have been to. There is fishing as well as hiking and everyone is so friendly! Amazing everytime!
A Favorite area that has unfortunately become very popular with the increased population. Has a very short season and gets busy very early in the mornings. If you don't think you can stay on a trail and aren't able to walk through mud instead of around mud please don't go. Great trail system to bring a leashed dog 🐕. It's also a great area to see moose.
