Best time to be on the trail is when you've got it to yourself. That may be next to impossible nowadays, though. I spent many an hour at the 360 access area, all seasons of the year. My favorite place, the few times I could have it all to myself. Shot thousands of frames. I haven't been there in quite a while, though.

I love this trail! Goes through wooded areas, as well as in and over the creek. There's a few good spots for swimming. Go during the week and it's pretty much all yours. Weekends can get stupid busy though. If you go, please pick up a few pieces of trash on your way out because there are too many a$$holes that leave their messes and make great places gross.

First and foremost, to get to this trailhead you need to drive down a 2-mile, one lane dirt road that is quite steep.
