Ranger at Great Smoky Mountains

No matter which national park we've visited, we have found the rangers informative and eager to share their knowledge. The programs are interesting, informative, and usually great fun for the kids. Thank you for all your dedication and hard work making the parks a wonderful place to be. Our most recent conversation with a ranger was in the Great Smoky Mountains NP. We asked about some hiking trails to see wild flowers. When the ranger looked at our marked up map, he pointed out that a couple of the hikes we planned to do were in areas under construction and closed. He then offered alternative choices that provided similar experiences. He saved us so much time and frustration that he comes to mind every time we discuss that trip. Thank you so much for caring about the visitors and helping to make their park experiences memorable!
