  • Did this today and it was beautiful! Highly recommend this to anyone! You can park on the street before the entrance and save the $7.

  • Climbing up those rocks looks like the only reason why I would do this trail. Looks like fun!

  • The parking wasn’t that bad at all. I parked on Sunset and it was fine. Great workout, lots of shade and beautiful scenery when you reached the top.
