Getting There

The hike is approximately 2 miles from the Fern Lake Trailhead in Moraine Park in Rocky Mountain National Park. Note, this is a popular trailhead for hikers, fisherpeople, and backpackers in the summer. You hike past the ice climb, Jaws; Arch Rocks; Arch Rocks backcountry campground (1 mi). Gillett describes, on p. 214-216 of his excellent guidebook, leaving the trail shortly after passing Arch Rock, a "rock retaining wall with several logs," a "10-foot section of retaining wall" on the left, going 50 yards, and then leaving the trail. For those with more average route-finding skills like us, we went to just short of "The Pool" (1.7 miles) then broke off right, up a hillside, across a moist meadow, and up to the crag(s) of choice.
