This was my first time to the park and it was great.  The park is pretty big and from what I heard in the summertime it gets packed.  In the winter, it is a nice place with few people. 

I went with a friend of mine that hasn't gone camping before so I went on a guided tour from one of the park interpreters.  He took us on a nice 4 mile trail and gave a little history about the area and what other trails we might want to take later.  It was great.  Some of the trails we went on were a little steep, but not too bad.

Overall, this was a great place to do some day hiking.  I even ran into some people that told me about a cave that was on a trail that was on park property, but it was listed as a dangerous trail and do at your own risk.   I'll probably check it out next time.
