This area is comprised of three seperate areas - the Gunsmoke Area, the Indian Wave Boulders and Alisters Cave - which all have different approaches and markedly different feels.
For problems in the Gunsmoke area - park in the large paved lot and hike in along the old road which turns into a trail. Make a sharp left midway along a worn trail, pass a short rocky section, go a bit further and turn right to enter a broad open valley - the Gunsmoke traverse will soon be visible at about one o'clock (slightly to the right). Plan on a 10 minute hike from the car.
