Parking @ Scenic Loop

Are there any regulations for parking outside the scenic loop and hiking in when the parking closed? I imagine the walk from the road to CC is maybe 45 - 60 minutes at a good clip?

Chrimson from the oak creek lot in the loop is about 75 minutes if you're motivated. From the road I'd guess 90.  Parking outside the loop and hiking in, especially for predawn starts, is acceptable.

Everyone's pace is a little different. Dean I've often done 50 minutes from oak creek lot to bottom of CC or Ginger Cracks, but motivation and knowledge of the trails is certain critical. I would agree that 90 minutes from outside the scenic loop is a good estimate, especially if you haven't hiked it before.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
