Comments: There is a $5 fee for parking and there is ample space all along the road if the lot fills up but you do have to head into the lot in order to grab the self-pay envelope and tag to hang in your car before heading out on the trail. While the trail isn't blazed, it is very obvious to follow along. After the summit of Osceola, the traverse over to East is FUN FUN FUN with some rock climbing adventuring. It was a beautiful day to be out in the forest. This was a very friendly hike and the outlook on Osceola was amazing! If you're lucky, you'll be up there on a clear day!

I will add that I did happen to see two injuries on my adventures. One of them was someone at the summit who had sliced her hand with her knife while slicing an apple for lunch. Her friend stood up and asked aloud if anyone had bandaids or a first aid kit and I was surprised to see that I was the only person who responded. Fortunately I was able to give her my gauze, medical tape, and wound cleaning solution so that her friend was able to take care of her cut which definitely was destined for an ER visit and some stitches. Whether you're new to hiking or experienced, it is always a good idea to invest in and carry with you, an emergency kit while you're out adventuring in the mountains because you truly never know when an accident will happen. I will also give a plug to the hike safe card. I didn't know about this when I began hiking so I thought others might not know about it either. You can learn more here: http://hikesafe.com/
