Description 

Park at the Hanger 18 lot, and follow the trail past that area. Keep right at the junction; the left fork would take you to Area 51.

Here are the main bouldering areas along the Caves Trail, from the west end, to the Caves.

Bokow boulder

Little Fluffy Clouds area

A few minutes up the trail from Little Fluffy Clouds, and immediately before Dubeck, there's a side trail left and uphill to reach 3-Star.

After Dubeck, the main trail reaches the Caves.

These notes owe heavy credit to Char Fetterolf's and Rob Holzman's published guides! The reader's notes and improvements are welcomed.

Getting There 

Follow the trail from Hanger 18 towards the Caves from the west, or from Top Rock Trail to the Caves from the east.
