We drove through and it was pretty. There were many trails and other things to do but we were not up to hiking. I would like to go back and do some hiking and see some of the water falls.

We are visiting during the summer and greatly love the beauty of this area. And I know that in many ways it is even more beautiful during the winter months. If you love to hike, this is a place for you to enjoy.
