Interesting park features
Did a slight variation of this hike since I was pressed for time. Took the right fork to Sams point, then to the ice falls, then went to indian rocks, then to high point, and back. As of 10/10/17 most of the park is still open. Evidence of the wildfire is hard to miss, though. It's certainly something you don't see everyday.

Thank you for the clarification and correction
<p>Thank you for your comments and clarification. &nbsp;I guess I should have taken the left fork at the wooden sign that read 'Trails" pointing toward the left and that was the continuation of the High Point Road. &nbsp;</p>
