Getting There

Approach via the North Trail from the main parking lot. At the bottom of the North trail turn left onto the gravel valley floor road, stay right at a fork in the road and pass the trailheads for Animal Crackers, Great Wall, and Hideout. Follow the road as it turns sharply left and uphill near an outhouse. Near the top of the hill turn right at a sign for Solarium, then make an immediate left up some stairs and follow the trail to the wall.
