No parking. Park at McDonalds and walk along the highway. The beginning of the trail is easy to miss but there is a yellow marker to show the beginning. My group, 3 mid 20 year olds, did this hike after it rained in the morning and this was a difficult slippery hike and we fell multiple times and got very muddy. Besides that we loved the challenge and loved the beautiful scenery on the way up. And then the views from the top were amazing. We recommend.
