This is the parking lot at the end of the Diamond Head road. It is a dirt parking lot. It holds about 30 cars. On a typical winter weekend, there will be 15 or 20 cars, mostly 4WD. In order to get to it in winter, you usually need 4WD and often chains. Many people with 2WD park lower down on the Diamond Head road and walk up the last hill.

There is an outhouse at the near end of the parking lot. The trailhead for the Elfin Lakes Trail is right at the far end of the parking lot.
