Unlike many of the other reviewers, we did not find anything exceptional in visiting this park. It is a nice park indeed, it makes for a nice, pleasant morning hike, but nothing else. Nothing significant or special to offer.

The road to Horton Plains National Park has been repaired though the last leg up to the park has some new holes. The park is a nice place to walk. Bring your lunch and take a leisurely walk, and enjoy the different points of interest.
