Loved this spot. Great hiking! Awesome views! Peaceful atmosphere! The trek from your car to the campsite is not far, but it is not close, I would say its about 500-750 yards away less than 5 min walk. I camped here in August 2014.

We did this hike for half a day. Maybe it's a little less - like 9 miles. We are in shape and hike often and say this was a moderate hike. Wear a hat and sunscreen because most of it is in the sun. Epic...More
