A note about parking:

Parking in the Inspiration Point lot is very limited and will fill up early. Parking is allowed along Wildcat Canyon Road, but please be sure to park so that your wheels are completely clear of the white line of the road. Hanging out onto the street is hazard for other motorists and for bicyclists, and also may result in a parking ticket. Please arrive with plenty of time, as you may have to park a ways from the trail head.
