Taft point is only around a 1 mile hike if you drive to the trailhead. The view here is really amazing and the point is truly beautiful. Easy hike that just about anyone can do from the trailhead.

A nice short hike, 2 miles round trip, or 5 miles if you also do the sentinel dome and pohono loop. Definitely worth a look for some cliff edge views of the valley and the interesting fissures. Also I am not good with heights but...More

Breathtaking view from the point - the valley looks to be miles down. The fissures are scary in that you just walk right upon them. The hike back up takes a bit but well worth the effort

From what I remember, yes there is one. Be warned thought that is a SMALL one. Lots of people park on the side of the road. If you get there early enough, you will have no problem.
