Leave No Trace

Restroom facilities are limited. Please come prepared for your visit by following Leave No Trace Ethics. Recreating responsibly is especially important during this time:

  • Plan Ahead and Prepare - know what's open in the area
  • Be Considerate of Other Visitors - gives other space on the trail
  • Dispose of Waste Properly - pack out your trash
  • Respect Wildlife
 

Reduce Crowding

There are many factors to consider when deciding to visit the park. Here are our suggestions for making your visit enjoyable:

  • Avoid the rush! May - September is busy. Parking between 10 am and 3 pm can be very difficult due to full parking lots. Consider visiting early (before 10 am)or late (after 4pm) in the day to avoid crowds and parking congestion.
  • Take the road less traveled! Try parking in the lot near the picnic area and hiking less-frequented trails.
