Hike: Hike from the parking lot toward Bull Creek and cross the seasonal footbridge, if available. The trail veers left/east just after you cross the footbridge. Turn right at the Flat Iron Tree sign and hike south, past the fallen Flat Iron Tree to an unmarked trail junction. Turn right here and hike west to the trail exit point near 40.34995 -123.99402.

Creek Warning: Rockview is not accessible from the Big Trees Area parking lot when Bull Creek has high water levels and the seasonal footbridge is not installed. It is best to visit Rockview from July through October when Bull Creek is low enough to wade across.
