    Got to the parking area around 1:30pm on a Sunday, both parkings were full but you can always park alongside the road, make sure on the ride side otherwise you get a ticket. Also stay inside the shoulder/the white line I’ve seen people getting tickets if their vehicle is sticking on the road. Hike was good, I wouldn’t say it’s challenging but it’s not an easy hike if you have issues with your ankles as you would be stepping on a lot of rocks. Due to the season(late autumn) views aren’t as pretty as if it would have been in summer or early fall. It was definitely a great work out, specially during this pandemic.
