The whole experience was great. The tour guides were welcoming and knowledgeable. The weather was perfect and we had a wonderful time! Heads up, the meeting point is at the airplane terminal, before the state park. We mistakenly drove to the park then had to go turn around and go back down the road to the airplane terminal building which is clearly visible as you approach. From reading other reviews we knew to bring a snack and there was time to relax and be still, which was welcome after the hike!
