We spent 2 hours getting to this park on July 8th 2018 and there were NO BLOOMS! Big disappointment! We met an elderly couple from Canada and they were also disappointed. There was no growth on the plants although there were plenty of them. Looks...More

Nice hike. There is no view from the top so don't expect to see anything. There is a flat trail that goes around in a circle through the Rhododendron bushes which is beautiful when they are in bloom.

I've been here a few times with my two young daughters. It is a real easy walk and they really enjoy it. Its is a micro environment like a mini rainforest. Off season, anytime besides the July bloom, it is very quiet.
