Getting There

If coming from the north and the vicinty of Coyote Crag hike west past Camp Rock and pick up a well-worn trail that leads south through the woods. When the trail splits head left and continue southeast a short distance until the northwest corner of the formation comes into view. Allow 5-10 for the approach.

From the southern parking area head north along the west face of Parkinglot Rock and then jog slightly northeast along a faint trail which leads to the southern end of the formation near the route Sloping Beauty. Allow 5 minutes for the approach.
