Accessibility from nearest trailhead or parking: Not accessible to the public
Comments: After parking in the vast lots on the valley floor, I walked by huge crowds of people waiting for something at a kiosk. Quite a few people were just standing around at the trailhead, and one guy gave me a hard look. This was one of the first times I was using my new two-hiking-stick approach, and while it got a lot of looks, it made hiking this kind of trail somewhat easier. I started out somewhat slowly up the many switchbacks under the trees. Soon I speeded up and kept leapfrogging some groups. Then the trail broke out into the open and the views kept getting better and better. Finally a rest spot and I pulled over and immediately started unpacking my gear. Ironically a guy resting here asked me if I was shooting QuickTime/VR. I shot a full circle and luckily not too many people blocked the view.
