Plan Your Visit
Plan on spending at least a few hours in the park, exploring the scenic drives or particular points of interests. If time permits, longer hikes, participate in a Junior Ranger program, recreate in Golden Gate, or consider attending a ranger-led program to learn more about these special places. Guided walks and tours occur at various locations.
