drive up Castle Creek past mile marker 3-4. There are some good pull-outs on the creek side of the road...

Not doable. Move along bum

We had some vagrants (hard core alcoholics) who lived out of their van for a couple of years recently. They often parked up Independence pass just below the gate near the Difficult campground entrance. They did not seem to be bothered and the local cops were very aware of them
