The trail's destination is the "Crag", a rock formation that juts out from the bluff's face that resembles a hawk's beak. It overlooks Whitaker Creek and a huge valley stretching for a long distance. but this is not all, in the spring and fall rainy season you can discover a number of waterfalls.

Another cool spot! The drive up the parking area was interesting and then you had a relatively easy hike out and back. Looked like a great place to make camp this spring.

Easy hike to the boulder which reminded me of Lion King! Be cautious on the boulders as there were reports of people falling off... and

Nervous we were going the wrong way when the dirt trail got narrow, skinny, and passed a few houses. It is the right way though and it was well worth the hike and the view. Hike to Whitaker point is about 35-40min and we did come across several groups of people throughout the hike.
