    We had so much fun. Got off the trail and clawed ourselves through sand, sliding rocks, yucca, brush and things. My nuckle is swelling as I'm writing this cause there's a thorn in it I can't get out. Tried to slice it open. It's too deep. When we finally found the trail at the almost very top, I was so excited that I jogged the whole way down dirty and bloody. At the front gate there was a bottle of water just sitting there. Oh, thanks. Don't mind if I do. Washed my wounds and drank the rest. Yum. It was truly an adventure. Definitely going again but staying on the trail this time. :P

    Do you guys usually leave at exactly 8:30 am or is there a cushion? My friend is taking the bus and might be a little late. Or I'll just tell her not to come. ^.\ /.^ He he.

    Hi, I have neverbeen to this place; can you please tell me about the parking situation? and if there is parking fee? Thank you.

    May 29, 2013

    • Lee Z.

      Public streets, no fee, but you must watch for no parking areas. Usually many cars parked along curb in immediate area, and one may need to park a couple blocks away. I always pull off Loma Alta into the first side street closest to the corner.

      May 29, 2013

    I have done this hike quite a few times, looking forward to going again. :)
