I wish I had gotten Taylor's last name. He was kind, informative and gave the best recommendations. I'd stop at the visitor's center a 3rd time just to get more tips.

We stopped here one early morning in mid October. There is a sizable parking area. They have a nice gift area. Not huge, but they have some nice things. Ample information on the park's history is available. Nice restrooms. Great views.
