Finally got out to see this view at sunset. 4WD was not required on the steep rocky Edison Trail. No clouds, just warm summer breezes, as we looked over the truck stop glow & the busy freeway. Locals like to off road at night, so be warned. Campgrounds are plentiful in Los Padres National Forest. Drive on past Frazier Park and hang a left on to Lockwood Valley Road to search for campgrounds.
