It’s really cool to be able to say that you’ve been to a rainforest. Before moving here, I didn’t even know there was a rainforest in the US. But I don’t think going in summer was the best time to go. For one, it isn’t rainy, so you don’t get the full experience and it’s not quite as green. The main problem though was the crowds. It was so extremely crowded. We also didn’t do the big trail, we did the smaller Hall of Mosses hike. It was gorgeous. I can only imagine what the longer hike would be like.

I suggest going in off season, not July. Also, make sure you have bug spray, mosquitos and horse flies like crazy. We had insect repellent patches, but not enough.
