Hi, 
Thank you for your question!
Sequoia National Park has many must sees, but the essential sight would be the Giant Forest north of the Ash Mountain Sequoia entrance. This forest is filled with over 8,000 gigantic redwoods, including General Sherman, the largest living tree in the world. Second to the redwoods, would be the Tokopah Waterfall that cascades for nearly 1,200 feet. Thirdly, would be Moro Rock, the gigantic granite dome that provides fantastic views of the park.
 
Hope you have a wonderful visit,

Hi, 
Thank you for your question!
 
Glacier National Park is an ideal place to view wildlife year round. However, if you’re looking to see some of the rarer species, or just especially active wildlife living in Glacier’s wetlands and forests, May or June would be your best bet. 
 
Hope you have a wonderful visit,

Hi Betty,

Thank you for reaching out to us! We appreciate you being a part of our community committed to our nation's great parks and public lands. We do our best to provide the most accurate and up-to-date information for outdoor explorers like you with our free app.

Guilford Lake was constructed as a canal feeder reservoir for the Sandy and Beaver Canal in 1834. An ambitious project undertaken by a private company, the canal was to be 73-miles long and would require two tunnels, thirty dams, ninety locks, three reservoirs and one 400-foot-long aqueduct before it was completed. The park is named after E.H. Gill who was chief engineer of the canal company for several years. He established a road through swampy areas of the present park which became known as Gill's Ford.

1984 was the year the park was declared a dedicated land. 

Dedicated lands are preserved as natural open space or developed for active outdoor recreation.

for more information you could check this website  http://parks.ohiodnr.gov/guilfordlake#history

We hope this information is helpful, and we appreciate that you took the time to share with us. We hope you will continue using our app to find more great parks to explore! Thanks again!

Cheers!
