This trailhead was actually difficult to find. Look for it to the right of the asphalt entrance road, before you get into the gravel roads and parking lot of the camp. A ranger mentioned to us that the length from trailhead to Kyles Landing would've been close to 8 miles one way, which I'm glad we found out before heading in. She was the one who suggested we go about a mile and a half to the lookout point- which was a great choice. The hike to the lookout is moderately strenuous, pretty rocky, and all uphill. The distance was perfect for us and we got to sit a while and admire that view!! An overall great hike!
