We parked on the side of the road on Hwy 11. This route is 1.5 miles longer making your hike 8 miles round trip. It’s also much steeper with a lot more switchbacks that make you want to turn around. A few small creeks to cross but they were not a problem. At the 2 mike mark, you will come to a lookout point with a bench to sit down and have a snack. It’s a beautiful view and if you feel you need to stop there then that would be the place. If you have the energy, keep going. Once to the top of Oyster dome all the switch backs were worth it. It’s amazing up top.
