Amazing hike!!! One of the best I've been on. There were hoards of people today, much more than I would have expected given the elevation gain. Pro tip for late-comers who have to park by the side of the road - park with your car facing downhill so you can leave easily! As people have written so far, the road is bumpy and potholed but not too bad - the monster pothole from earlier this summer has been filled. Trail-finding gets a little difficult when you get to the rocky section and there are several false trails. Follow the cairns. When I'm doubt, go left. Blueberries are ripe in the meadow, but the season is nearly over, so go now!!! #omnomnom
