Situated approximately 31 miles east of Diablo Lake Overlook. There is a small free car park, toilet and information board. There is a small trail in the form of a loop and the views are incredible.

I have been here before but never taken the walk to the look out. It is definitely worth the short walk. The overlook is amazing of the road. Worth the 10 min or less walk.

We came through this area in June, and everything was green and lush. It is a National Park, so the traffic is slower, but there are so many places to pull of and take photos! The opportunities for hiking are great too. Worth you time!

This was going to be my eastbound turnaround point but missed the sign. Snow drifts. only room for 5-6 cars to park due to snow and need to keep road open for plows. several groups with snowshoes. Snow melt -saw waterfalls at every turn.
