This place has its own feels. So green and fresh with moss. There are many different trails for hiking and so many activities going on by the visitor center that needs to be coordinated with timing as the place is deep inside the park and parking is limited. Hall of mosses trail is great if you are in a hurry to have the view and not trade off time.
Other than the long line to get in this national park is Amazing. Although I wish I visited while it was raining. The trees didn't look as majestic as I envisioned them to be. The Spruce trail was the best. The opening to the river is so nice. Very easy and everyone l accessible. Saw plenty of kids and older people out here.
