The area is readily seen from the north end of the dam looking east when on Lake Shore Drive. The red rock is iron stained ortho-quartzite and the capping gray rock is dolomite.
Drive just north of MM 2 on Rd 317 and go east on the gravel CCC Museum road that winds clockwise around the conical hill NE of this junction. Near the northeastern side of the hill on this road are two green traffic gates (normally open) where a 2-track just ahead-east of the gates splits off to the left. Your parking pulloff is here. Begin the hike .65 miles by going NE past the boulders closing the 2-track for about 100 feet to a carin and footpath on the right.
