Parking/Access Road Notes
Parking/Access Road Notes: I was there early, and there were 4 or 5 cars in the lot. Saw several on-mountain camp sites occupied, so I think those cars were mostly overnighters. This was a holiday weekend in peak foliage, so it was a very different story when I got back to the lot. A constant stream of bumper-to-bumper traffic working its way uphill, the lot full with cars waiting for spots to open up, and multiple drones buzzing overhead. I'll refrain from profanity.

Comments
Comments: The loose surface material on the way down can make footing a bit dicey in spots, but this was likely the biggest hazard I encountered. Otherwise smooth sailing with a nice challenge near the summit. (I went up Hancock and down South Hancock)
