Lots of shade at the beginning. Great canopies of oak and juniper trees.

Took the shuttle from the Visitor Center to the top and hiked down the following trails: Ed Riggs, Mushroom Rock, Inspiration Point, Big Balanced Rock, Heart of Rocks Loop, Sarah Deming, and Lower Rhyolite Canyon. This was a beautiful hike up and down across the canyons with some outstanding rock formations and forests along the way. We ended up back at the Visitor Center where our car was parked.
