Skull Rock reviews
The skull rock itself is fine. Probably more interesting if you're under the age of 14. But the general area of Jumbo Rocks is cool and there's a big hike, so why not lay your eyes on a rock with eye sockets?
If you have any experience with climbing and such, its worth getting on top of not only the skull rock but also the nearest highest peak. Well, second highest at least. The highest I didn't try. What a view. I suggest sunrise once you've gotten up once already and know how it is. Absolutely amazing area.
