The 22 miles to the trailhead will take awhile but is very doable as long as you take your time. There is enough room for two tents/ groups at trailhead plus about room for about 6 cars. Within a 5-mintue walk, there are several other great places to camp...all free! I know this is marked as a 3 in terms of road conditions but I have to share a story that gives that number a run for its money. We had just parked after the 22 miles of bumpy, rock ridden road (in our high-clearance, 4-wheel drive vehicle) when we looked up to see a SmartCar cruising by on a scenic drive. So yes, this is a 3 but as the Smartcar demonstrated if you take it slow, anything can make it back.

I fixed the date and the millions of typos. I guess adding a trip report via cell phone might not be a good idea.
