Parking/Access Road Notes
Parking/Access Road Notes: The road was closed (no surprise there). Do not park in the little area by the gate. There was a sign that was very faded and it said: no parking any time. A few cars were parked by the sign too. A fresh dusting of snow fell last night, so the road walk was a little snowy. The road walk is 2.7 miles. It was fairly easy. On the way back, we stopped at wildlife pond. It was a beautiful pond with an amazing view! I will tell you though, it was kind of rough to get there. If you are wondering where to park, just keep driving a little ways and you will find a parking lot.
