Description

The hike into this area is a little longer but much more secluded and use. If you want to get away from the crowds, this is the place.

Getting There

To get to lower slabs the trail is actually off the right of the Seneca Rocks hiking trail. Travel up the trail through two flights of stairs with steel and cable railings, past some wood fencing, and into the upper set of switchbacks. The hikers' trail will switchback left at a bolder. Look right for an obvious trail with no immediate markings, as shown in the picture below from user cliffmama:After ~50 ft the climber's trail is blazed with yellow plastic diamonds until you reach Scuttle.If you previously used the Lichen sign as a marker note that it has been replaced an installed in a different location much lower on the trail!
