When walking up from Alligator Lounge, eventually there are two shallow drainages to choose from, with an outcrop of squat, stacked plate-type rocks in between. Try the right side - the drainage without all the aspen saplings in it. Much more open terrain and less deadfall to step over. This is easier to see from the base of Arch Rock (you know, after you've already done the hike up...). Jun 1, 2016
