Thanks for the update. My directions don't indicate use of that highway though. So, should I just instruct people to avoid it?

zimzimhpParking fee update


Hasn't voted

We went earlier this week and the fee is now $5.00 PER PERSON. Children under 13 are free. I think it should also be mentioned that from the parking lot there is also a free shuttle to the top. Both the parking lot and top have restrooms. There is a great visitor center at the top and 14 minute video on the bald.

Thanks. When I went there was a visitors center, but pretty rustic as I remember. I also went late at night in January 2002.

richhArkaquah Trail gain

Hasn't voted

The elevation difference between the trailhead and the summit is indeed 2500 ft. However, on my hike, there was about 550 ft of downhill going up. This needs to be re-climbed each direction. So the total elevation gain for round-trip is about 3600 ft. This might make a difference for those not used to climbing a lot.
Thanks for the page.
