Getting There Suggest change

Park as for Practice Rock and hike 100 feet up the road to a faint trail. Look for an old stone foundation wall and angle up and right to a large ledge below the Cornerstone cliff (5 minutes). One can also approach from the Bowling Alley by following the trail that angles uphill and north/west along the Tungsten Mine Shaft Cliff, angle downhill towards a gully and scramble up onto the ledge below the Cornerstone cliff (10 minutes).
