I was out in the area for the super bloom in Lancaster. We really wanted to camp here and hike some of the PCT but (and maybe this was due to all of the rain this year), our 2WD car could not make it up to the site. Hope to come back sometime and check it out. But mainly, wanted to give everyone a heads up before they head out there, go in a 4WD or plan on camping elsewhere :)
