  • Enter a detailed but brief description about your activity — usually a few paragraphs is enough to cover the topic. Include any necessary tips on finding a particular place, any fees or costs involved (other than park entry fees) and any special advice or precautions (like "bring bear spray" or "the trail is muddy in early summer"). Try to be descriptive and specific about what's special about your activity. Tell readers why they'll want to give it a try and why it's something you enjoy doing whenever you have the chance.
