Though the park didn’t receive its national park designation until the early 1900s, it has been a hotbed of human activity for thousands of years, starting with Native Americans back in 6,000 B.C. The region has gone through subsequent changes of inhabitants and uses but today is home to one of the best national parks in the country.
