July conditions- This should be called Bee's View. The bees gather under your car (HUNDREDS of them) to drink from your AC. We didn't know this at the time so bug spray worked long enough for me to jump into the car but I am dying to know what would have happened had I just poured some water on the ground a few yards away. The bees aren't aggressively trying to sting you, they are just SO thirsty. Try not to swat or freak out. It is still scary either way. I have no idea how I didn't get stung. But I got some pretty good photos with the view so I really can't complain. Good luck!

Nice view. Not really a hike, more of a walk.

After driving up to trail, we could not do as there were too many bees in the area. Signs warned us and they were right. We were able to go a bit further down to the Handicap viewing area and look out. It was very beautiful. Could see in great distance but there was some haze in the area. We will try again someday when back in the area.
