This area is about 1/2 mile south of Medlicott Dome. From Hwy 120, this is the lower formation seen to the right of Medlicott.
Park about 1/10 mile east of the Knobs. Wander through the forest on a faint trail marked with cairns, to an open slab area below the cliff. Head up through the woods to the base.

The new approach trail is wonderful! (It used to be a sloggy mess if you got into the swamp...) Follow cairns from the main trail starting at the open, slabby region. The trail leads into the woods off the right side of these slabs and is clear, obvious & easy. Skirts to the right of the swampy region. Below the dome, at the large slab, follow cairns up and left, aiming toward the left-center of Dozier Dome. 20-25 minutes; very straightforward.
