We stopped in to check out some maps, and about an hour later we had learned about geology, local animals and some less popular hikes that were wonderful.

Looking for brochures etc and there were not huge amounts and to find out most things you had to ask the staff instead. The staff were helpful enough but sometimes a little research first can make things more targetted

The person who helped was was clearly a local, knew the trails and how to approach them. She gave us great advice regarding bear warnings, and pointed out that bear bells are useless. They sell tourist stuff, but it is the advice that is great.

We spent a lot of time simply parking in the areas and going part way. My wife had two new hips so hiking was out. We would spend anywhere from 1 hours in small parks to half a day. It really depends on what parks you are... More
