2 Quick questions, going to park on Spring Break (got a kiddo so thatís the only time we can go), I know it is busy, but if driving in from Ft. Davis (long drive each day) and arriving at the park between 8-9am each day. Starting my days off headed to lost mine trail day 1 and window trail the next day.1. Is it better to enter the park from 118 or 385? Google says they are about the same time/distance but from a sitting in line perspective is one better than the other?2. Trail head parking can limited (lost mine and window) so I will be trying to get there early as possible but realistically how bad is it? Any tips? Can I park on the side of the road at either trail head?
I hadn't thought about the train but.....I have seen many posts and pictures of long back ups at the Maverick entrance station (closest to Study Butte) and have never heard of a back up at Persimmon Gap more than a few cars.
