walking into the woods one remembers Longfellow's "evangeline" "THIS is the forest primeval. The murmuring pines and the hemlocks, Bearded with moss, and in garments green," It is "SOO" peaceful and relaxing, but awesome

You can park for free right at the main entrance off the main road. If you drive to the trailhead you have to pay. Park right away. The walk is maybe 500m
