Getting There

From the Quail Springs Road-Big Horn Pass Road (Barker Dam Road) intersection, drive east on Big Horn Pass Road for 0.6+ miles. Turn left at the gravel road signed "Key's Ranch-Wonderland of Rocks." Continue straight (onto a dirt road) for about 0.25 mile (past the large parking lot turnoff). A small fence lot will be found on the right at the "mouth" of the Cove. If full, park about 150 yards back at a larger fenced lot.
