The Playground is a much tougher trailhead to find and is a much more difficult hike, especially if you are a taller person. This is not because of a huge elevation change, but the overgrowth of the foliage surrounding the path makes is like a tunnel for most of it. I am hiking, bent over, for the majority of it. The view of SB is not as high as Lizard’s mouth, but the rock formations here are MUCH bigger. So instead of small crevices that drop a few feet, you might be jumping over a crevice that goes down 30 feet. Fun.
