Activities: About 28 miles of trails are available for backpacking or hiking. Included is a 6-mile segment of the 111-mile Centennial Trail (see entry page 260), which begins in this park. Difficulty varies from easy to strenuous. Horseback riding and mountain biking are not permitted in the backcountry.

Camping Regulations: Camping is allowed in most areas of the park. A backcountry camping permit is required, and may be obtained from the visitor center. Campfires are prohibited, so a stove should be carried for cooking.
