    We arrived at 6:30am and there was plenty of parking. To park closest to the trailhead, park across from the Trail’s Cafe. Sunrise wasn’t until 7, so it was very dark. I used my phone light until we found the trail. From parking, walk down the ramp and towards the picnic benches & restrooms. The West Trail is the middle trail. It’s a good, short hike. It took us 20 min to get to the Observatory. The Observatory was beautiful in the dark b/c of the lights. If trail is too easy, u can trail run, the trail is wide. On the drive out, around 7:30, people were parking have a mile down the road. Enjoy!
