No shade in the area so get 'er done early. Decent views of stuff I've driven by for decades. Done with all the trails here and done with being in the area for medical stuff for my wife. Was here for 5 1/2 weeks. Back to the ocean and the redwoods...

Not enough shade to do this when the temperatures are high. Laughlin loop was recently plowed, so there are dirt clods. Enough people are walking in the same path to tamp them down but not in all areas.

The beaten down paths are slippery in some areas, take caution and wear hiking shoes/boots or something that has a good grip on the tread.

Going to save this one for a winter hike when everything is green and the weather is cooler.
