Points of Interest

1. Trailhead

The trailhead is exactly (according to my Jeep’s odometer) one mile from the Hwy 67 turnoff. Normally parking is not a problem; this picture shows that the local rescue team was having an exercise.

The rocks at the top are above the tree line; so you’ll have a 360 degree panoramic view of... More
