Start your Hermit’s Rest Experience by taking the shuttle to Maricopa Point. It’s a bit further up and then you can walk between several points before picking the shuttle back up.

Since I'm limited on how long and how far I can walk with my rollator, I have to be selective on my hikes. After walking halfway to the overlook, I knew I HAD to complete this hike. This was one of my most memorable parts...More
