Turn left under I-5, go to Military Rd. traffic light. Turn left again and see the P&R on the left. Look for blue Chevy S-10 pickup. 1/4 hr. Slow-paced group hike to a view you'll want to return to time and time again. We'll pass 7000 feet on this one, and return by a different route over a waterfall. Prepare to be in the sun all day.
