There was plenty of parking when we went. The start of the trail was a little tricky to find, kind of walk back in the direction of Lair o’ the Bear. We also found it tricky to actually get to panorama point once at the top. There wasn’t a trail for the last let like the map indicated. I would suggest continuing till you actually meet up with the panorama point trail then taking that up. We wanted to do a loop rather than out and back so took bear creek trail to panorama trail and back to the road and walked along back to the car. You can do a shorter hike if you park at Corwina Park and take the trail. The views are definitely awesome! It’s really not to difficult of a hike, a little rocky in some spots. My brother and his girlfriend are from Michigan and don’t have the opportunity to hike too much, and the kept up on this hike. There are wild raspberries several spots along the way. If you’re looking for a hike with a payoff, give this one a go!

Really great trail! Keep in mind that there is a loop and it is easy to keep walking past this map and get to the loop. If you turn left to take the loop, the views are great but know there is a little bit of an incline. Totally worth it. I don’t have trouble with parking and there was enough room for bikers and hikers. Wildflowers were in bloom!

One of my favorite trails. This is listed as easy but I would consider the last half to be fairly moderate mainly because of the incline. The views are so worth it though. The entrance to this trail almost looks like a driveway so it’s easy to miss.

It's about five miles round trip. Beautiful walk through the trees and the last half mile up to Panoroma is steep, but worth it for the view at the end. The trail is popular with bikers so make sure to keep an ear out. Plenty of parking a quarter mile from the trail head.
