This is our third foray to Mt. George. Rains have not fallen as heavy here as other areas, but there was no shortage of wildflowers... nor Poison Oak. But we were luck to have with us someone who grew up in the area, knew the trails, and provided some colorful and some sad personal histories. The one lane road has been repaved, but parking is non existent so expect to shuttle.


See our Park page for more information.
