    A Complete Guide for an active vacation

    I love how this book not only has hikes, but paddling and biking too so you have a complete guide for your active vacation. Its also nice that they do but some history about the land also in the book in between hikes. I would definately recommend this book for people visiting the park included also is a map so you dont have to buy one separately.
