Great hike! On the Potholes trail you will hike through an amazing split in the rock face towards the top. Neat experience, and views are well worth steep climb to the top! A series of rounded, eroded, depressions or potholes located near the top of trail.
Park in the South entrance group camping lot to find the trailhead, just a few steps North of the parking lot. A few different paths you can take, but took grotto trail (.3 miles) to Potholes trail (.4miles) and looped back on the CCC trail (1 mile). Very steep climb for a decent amount of the trail with lots of rocky steps but well worth it considering the view at the top overlooking the lake and surround area! Once you reach the top of the East bluff you can take a few different paths and explore the cliffs, very popular area for rock climbers as well.
- Trekking Poles (optional)
- Good hiking boots
