Description Suggest change

Afternoon shade. This area has a lot of trees. Shady and cool.

Getting There Suggest change

Drive up the canyon 5.7 miles from the flashing sign. There is a pull out on the North Side of the road. There is an orange sign with "7.8" in black at the pull out. This sign is for "mile marker" 7.8 as it is only a little ways before mile marker 8. Walk up the hill into the trees and you can't miss the wall.

The easiest way is to navigate to Mineral Fork Trailhead on your phone/GPS. When your GPS says you're 500ft away, you'll spot the pull out on the left.
