Inspiration Point

Inspiration Point is a good destination to use as a halfway point for a hike.  It has picnic tables under a roof structure, shade, a great view, and is a hub that many trails connect to.  This makes it possible to create loops so that at least part of your hike isn’t simply a return along the same trail that go you to Inspiration Point.  There is also signage telling some of the history of the area and a remnant of the old one man and mule railway.
