Running late due to a long drive, but got here just in time to visit the Visitors' Center. Small, well appointed, staff helpful and friendly. View was spectacular. Suggest a much longer visit to enjoy the trails.

Cost is nothing. Views are priceless especially on a low humidity day as we had. Unheard of for July. Been here quite a few times. If your passing through you must stop. The visitors center has a very cool interactive 3d map.

There is limited space atop Caesar's Head. If no one has the same idea as you it will be fine. Otherwise it will be very crowded. If you like to hike, a 3.5 mile trek to the top of nearby Table Rock would be better for... More

I believe it is about 2.2 miles each way. It is beautiful!! Please check with rangers though since the fires are still bad.
