Any experienced hiker knows you need to have local knowledge when in a new environment and these guys have it in abundance. They are all really helpful and super friendly. Also great place to recover with a hit beverage after a long trail!

Fully stocked store, bathrooms, parking and knowledgeable guides for area hikes. Many people park outside the gate and walk in to avoid paying the parking fee. Pay if you are going to use the facilities! There are several trail heads in the resort. You can access heart lake for a cool down swim after your hike.

If you happen to be in the area for a hike and have some questions on a route this is a good place to start. The folks here weren't overly friendly, but they were helpful. There are hikes in the area for any level of fitness and experience.
