Description

This area is comprised of three seperate areas - the Gunsmoke Area, the Indian Wave Boulders and Alisters Cave - which all have different approaches and markedly different feels.

The highly popular Gunsmoke Area is found north of the parking area in a large open valley that's not visible from where you park while the Indian Wave Boulders are slightly northeast of the parking area and Alisters Cave lies hidden amongst rocks on the far northwest side of the Gunsmoke Valley.

Getting There

For problems in the Gunsmoke area - park in the large paved lot and hike in along the old road which turns into a trail. Make a sharp left midway along a worn trail, pass a short rocky section, go a bit further and turn right to enter a broad open valley - the Gunsmoke traverse will soon be visible at about one o'clock (slightly to the right). Plan on a 10 minute hike from the car.

For the Indian Wave Boulders head northeast from the parking lot to pick up a trail heading east to the boulders which lie scattered about the trail. Plan on a 5 minute hike to reach this area.

Alisters Cave is approached as for Gunsmoke but you'll continue past it and head northwest towards an obvious orange corner (Rockwork Orange). See the area description for more detailed approach information. Plan on 20-30 minutes for the approach.
