Took the dogs which you're not supposed to in some areas so that can be challenging. It's not so much a hike to skull rock just a walk but usually a lot of traffic for photo opps depending on when you go.

simple hike right off the road that you can do quickly. It gets a bit confusing because part of the hike goes through the campgrounds and is not marked well.

great wildflowers in the spring.

We parked at the camp ground just south of the trail. Nice loop with lots of interpretive signs and great views of the jumbo rocks! Bring water! There are bathroom s but only near the campgrounds.
