Park Information

Day visitor

To make sure that we, as well as future generations, can enjoy quality outdoor experiences, each one of us must share the responsibility of protecting our environment.
Leave no trace

The Park supports the Leave No Trace program, which educates people who enjoy the outdoors about the nature of their recreational impacts as well as techniques to prevent and minimize such impacts. The following five principals of Leave No Trace are for safety of visitors and to protect our natural resources.

Plan ahead and prepare

Check the park website to see if closed due to weather conditions, or management activities.
Check the weather forecast and plan for possible changes in weather.
Bring plenty of water, sunscreen, insect repellent, a hat and good pair of running or walking shoes.
Carry a cell phone.
Let a friend know where you are going and when you will return.

Waste disposal

Please remember to carry out everything used during your stay. Help us keep the areas clean and natural.

  • Leave what you find
  • Leave rocks, plants and other natural objects as you find them.
  • Do not build structures, dig trenches or cut down trees or shrubs.
  • Respect wildlife
  • Observe wildlife from a distance. Do not follow or approach them.
  • Never feed animals. Feeding animals damages their health, alters natural behaviors and exposes them to predators and other dangers.
  • Stay on marked trails or roads to avoid trampling habitat.
  • Avoid wildlife during sensitive times such as mating and nesting seasons.
  • Be considerate of other park visitors
  • Respect other visitors and protect the quality of their experience.
  • Be courteous, yield to other users.
  • Let nature’s sounds prevail. Avoid loud voices, music and noises.
