    Getting There 

    Go to the Sunset Parking lot in the Wichita Mts Wildlife Refuge. Crab Eyes is about 2 mile hike, take the trail across the second stream, and take your first trail opportunity to go right and over the little ridge. As soon as you crest it, look southwest, and you should see the Crab Eyes.
