This is a road, not a trail. Also the only allowable camping is at the Campground, not on the scenic drive. Campground is located 3 miles from the visitor center on SR159.

A great winter hike! I did this one in February and camped (bivi sack) at the 10 mile mark. Amazing rock colors at dawn and dusk.
Had a rental car so no worries about parking at the trailhead.
Very isolated hike - especially during the week.
