An impressive view of the Cathedral-like towers of Mount Garfield. Although the road is firmly gated, the first 2.5 miles is drivable, but without traffic it is a very agreeable walk. Best in the spring when the way is lined with bright yellow violets.

Had to use bug spray, but it's a lovely view. We got to a bridge that was washed out; careful if/when you cross it.
