You can drive up this mountain loop road, park your car and enjoy the view. You can also hike on several trails that are there.

beautiful views all around and an easy drive up. Camel Beach 5000ft zip wire starts just here. The park itself is lovely with lots of trails and grills for families. Views for miles to the surrounding areas. Facilities very clean.
