Posted By: abe1982 Info: Hiked Parnassus on Saturday and arrived at the TH at 6:30 AM. North side of the lot was 95% full with no one parked on south side of lot. Got back down to TH at 11:30 and cars were parked up and down the interstate on/off ramps, the road under the interstate and on the side roads near the TH. Best to arrive before 7 AM or avoid on summer weekends.
Posted By: RckyMntnHgh Info: Only one other car when I started at 9:30 am today - Memorial Day! Parking lot and first 3/4 mile dry (other than moisture from ongoing light snow but above freezing temp so it evaporates/melts quickly). Knee-deep post-holing off and on through snow belts last mile before lake.
Posted By: madmattd Info: Huge lot, 2 port-a-potties. A bit bumpy at the entrance, but still passable by any vehicle. Cars were parked all along the entrance road mid-day (Labor Day Weekend traffic or the norm?).
