Awesome view! Road up to the parking lot is very narrow and steep. You can either drive up, or park in the lower lot and walk up the hill.

The hike up to shovel point is beautiful. When you get to the top you have an amazing view of Palisade Head.

A very easy hike with a great payoff - beautiful views of the lake from the cliffs. Be sure to walk the trail to the end.

Nice hike, half mile or so each way. Lots of stairs. Incredible vistas back towards Palisade Head. Saw quite a few climbers getting set up. Beautiful.
