Horseshoe lake is situated below a hillside that holds numerous granite outcrops. The original Horseshoe Slabs is an area long popular with beginners and groups but more recently there have been a number of newer areas developed mainly around the Horseshoe Piles section. Unlike the Slabs that are located next to the lake the other areas are located on the hillside to the south of the lake and are more easily accessed via a trail from the Lake George parking area.
The area is located south of Horseshoe Lake. This is easily found by driving into the lakes basin from the town of Mammoth Lakes until the road ends at a large parking lot. For the crags listed under Horseshoe Piles it is best to park at the Lake George parking area.
