There are two parking lots, so take note which one you parked in, or it could cost you an extra 5 or more mile hike!

Spring is the best time of year to hike here during the day. If you like rocks and condors.

Check ahead to ensure amazing caves are open (closed periodically for bats). Rest/lunch at reservoir. Great campsite!

For an easy trail that's also full of sites, take the Moises Spring Trail. It's only a 2.5 mi loop & you climb thru caves, see rock formations, and end at a breathtaking lake.

The link on foursquare for the campground location is inaccurate and lacking. Go to the website for the best info. http://www.nps.gov/pinn/index.htm

We drove through Hollister and used the East Entrance off hwy 25. E & W entrances on Highway 146 do not connect through the park. Look at maps carefully especially if you wish to reach the campground

Best hike ever! Try Juniper Canyon Trail and watch the peaks for condors!

Bring your own food :) some sundries, beer, frozen foods, but not much just canned & dry goods. The 6 mile loop High Peaks via the caves is great for big views and mild to strenuous hiking.
