Tom’s Rating:

Trail Info: To get to Inspiration Point head along highway 89 as if you were heading to the Emerald Bay Parking Lot. There will be a turnoff on the north side of the road that is well marked. Parking is very limited for Inspiration Point so be sure to get there early or you can try to find a space across the street in the campground.
