We always enjoy the walking trails, the view and just being out in nature. Would highly recommend going at the end of the day to see amazing sunsets or early in the morning for the sunrises.

This area has a nice three mile walk on a gravel path. There is a parking fee of $5 however that is collected at the building near the parking lot.

Pay $5 per car at the visitor center. Wear hat and use sunscreen as there is hardly any shade. Gradual elevation and easy hike. Go early morning to avoid the heat. We went after heavy rain the day before and there was a lot of...More
