Description

Ten minutes from the trailhead, this is more of a stroll than a hike. But being here for sunset makes up for a lack of exercise. Might be a great way to end hiking in the area, provided your car's near the Skyline Boulevard trailhead. Check the weather, grab your camera, and bring a jacket.

A handful of minutes off of Hickory Oaks Trail, you'll find the humble Turtle Rock. Venture here at the right time of day, and the sun will reward you with grass ablaze and gilded treetops … before the famous low clouds descend to test your rain jacket.
