Description

Sunny area in PMRP across the holler from The Dark Side.

Getting There

Brightside is directly across the holler from The Dark Side. Follow driving directions for Solar Collector/Gold Coast and hike to Solar Collector/Gold Coast. Then, walk left from Solar Collector (especially tempting on crowded fall days when you'll find sun and no crowd at Brightside.)
