Staff was very helpful in helping us to obtain backcountry permits and giving information we later found very useful, or answering any questions we had. Our trip was great and I am so happy that we listened to the suggestions on how much time to take for each leg or what camp to stay at. Thank you guys!!

Here they have everything you need and want to know such as map, national park passport stamp and a board outside that looks like written everyday with daily activities. You could tell the people here love to give you information you need and would love to help you if you have questions.
