How far along the trail is Salamander Rock? I went looking for it yesterday and couldn't find it.

So, it is along the trail to the Upper Town Wall, but before the fork that goes over to Blues. It might have been around the first clock-wise switchback (i.e., bending back right), but don't know.

This particular route used to stand out while walking the trail (left side, where all the rock is). Perhaps it has totally grown over?
