My wife and I hiked two of the many trails and had a fabulous day. The visitors center has display like none other you've seen. This is a worthwhile spot to take the time to hike and visit.

Unfortunately as with the other two answers to your question I can't tell you how to reserve spaces for a ranger tour. We went on our own, and I agree with Marieg295 that the trails are well marked and it's nice to do them... More

No, but parking is tricky. You have to wait for a space, since they only allow a certain number in the area at any given time. The only entrance fee is the National Park entrance fee.
