  • Check before you take the road from Otto. It was closed. We had to drive back to the Indian Springs campground. You are on a FS road for about 10 miles. The hike was fairly easy about 2 miles round...  more »
  • Man o man was this fun. Easy hike with amazing views. The access road might be a problem for low clearance cars. I drive a small Honda suv made it no problem. It’s a must do if you have time.  more »

  • This is an easy hike with big rewards in the form of rocky overlooks with great views. It is a popular climbing spot, too. The drive to the trail head is along a steep, winding gravel road, but any car should be able to make it.
  • Easy hike. Well worth it. A few different rocks to go out on to look at the view. One definitely looks like a nose! I had to take the detour through the ag center parking lot. I also continue down the road and went to the right to Albert Mountain fire tower. And then double back and went to the left, to Laurel Falls. All well worth it!
