bibliophilacticbee : Agreed. I would’ve been pissed if D.H. had asked my parents’ “permission” but he did want to show my parents the ring and tell them he was going to propose. I am close to my family and thought that was sweet. Others would find even that to be unwelcome, so it is important to know what OP’s S.O. would like.
OP, I agree that Blue Nile is excellent. I would do that over a “wholesaler” in a heartbeat.

peterso2 : do you normally go hiking with her at this park? If no, then she might get a bit suspicious when you all of a sudden want to go hiking with her in this specific place. Try incorporating the proposal into something that you two do together all the time, that way she’ll never see it coming.

We’ve went hiking at the park previously and she wants to go back. It’s one of her favorite places. So I think no worries. Anyways last weekend I drove by it , its about a 45 min drive away as I was passing thru on a Saturday. The place was a dang Zoo. Packed with people all over the place. I was going to scout spots but now I’m worried. If the day I plan to do this what if it’s a zoo. Continue anyways or try to shift the proposal to a week night? I was set on doing it on a Saturday afternoon? Thoughts? Help?? Thanks all! The ring situation is good, I have a good plan for that and she is onboard.

peterso2 : continue anyway. Zoo or no zoo. It truly doesn’t matter.

peterso2 : If having a lot of people around will bother you guys, try a week day.
Ditto on “wholesaler”, as well as what others have said re: asking permission. Unless you know that’s something she would specifically want you to do, I would definitely consider calling her parents “hey I just wanted to let you know I’m planning on this. It would mean a lot to me to have your blessing.”
