    I love this place, but peak times are 9-11 AM. It will be almost impossible to find parking. But you can drive a little past the parking lot to find parking in the residential neighborhood.

    Nice trail. There are trees everywhere which much needed relief from the sun. Parking is a big problem, so try and get there early.

    Hike the PG&E trail early or late, to avoid banking in the sun. 4000 feet cumulative altitude gain.
