This section of rocks is located just below the area known as Berkeley Camp, which is a section of National forest land that is leased by the University of California - Berkeley, and is known as Berkeley Municipal Camp. This rock can be seen from highway 50 below, though it is nearly invisible from the camp itself.
Instead of heading up to the Echo Lake parking lot on Echo Pass road, head only about 1 1/2 miles up, where you will see a sign stating "Berkeley Camp Parking" with an arrow pointing to the left. You can park on the road here, or go into the parking lot if the road is full. Walk accross the street to the area full of some covered structures, and some uncovered structures known as Berkeley Camp.
