Description

The Fin is a big wall of red stone that sits above Dry Creek Road, just north of the Devil's Bridge site. The formation has probably seen a huge spike in visitation since the route, Mars Attacks, was established a few years back (and for good reason).

Getting There

The Fin is located off Dry Creek Road. Park in a pullout off the road...gotta check my notes... The approach is relatively easy if you shoot for the left end of the formation and access via trail. Don't try to come at it straight on!

The pullout for the Fin (Mars Attacks) is on Forest Service Road 152. Drive up Dry Creek Road for a couple miles until you see a small sign for 152 on the right. You can purchase a red rocks day pass here.

Drive 1.6 miles on a rough dirt road to a small pullout on the right and a faint trail behind it. Wander up to the left shoulder of the fin to the routes. Mar 30, 2009
