1 Review of Pickens Nose Trailhead Campsite
First to Review
Small area for camping near parking

This site is a small clearing near the parking trailhead for Picken's Nose that has an established firepit and a space prepared for a single tent or a pair of hammocks. It does not have much to offer other than the fact that it is so close to the car. It would be a good spot to set up if you want to get some early climbing in but don't want to hike in with all your camping gear. You will definitely get a better view and the camping is better at the actual climbing area but this is a decent alternative if you get a late start.
