Description

Wall of Denial is a great place to go to escape the crowds. Except when the crowds show up trying to avoid you.

It's a long walk but well worth it. The routes are good and varied. The setting is aesthetic and remote.

Getting There

Park at the concrete bridge parking area. Hike up the Douglas Trail as if going to Eagle's Nest. The trail will bend right (south) with the river past Eagle's Nest. After a few more minutes you will cross a shallow, but narrow gully. Immediately after crossing look for a trail heading into the rhododendron on the left. After making the split look for another split and follow th eleft trail up the hill toward the cliffline. Once at the main cliff walk around the corner to the right. The wall faces south.

Early editions of the guidebook have maps that show the cliff in an incorrect location (much farther east than it really is).
