Additional Directions

The trail for Bob's is now marked with a Sallal Point sign attached to a tree.

If you keep track of the switch backs from The Actual Cave, you should turn right once, left once and at the next right you should go left, rather than follow the trail for a second right.

If you get to the Great Wall Trail marker, you have gone too far, go back down hill for 20 minutes. Apr 19, 2015

The trail for Bob's area is the same one that goes to Mt. Washington (for the first 2 miles). The start of this trail is not very obvious. A more detailed description about the start is on WTA website :
Start by following the signs for John Wayne Trail and Twin Falls at the south end of the parking lot near the bathroom structure. This short spur trail climbs immediately south then west before merging with a gravel logging road in a few hundred yards. Stay right at the junction, continuing to climb uphill for another tenth of a mile, and stay right at the next junction with the John Wayne Pioneer Trail/Iron Horse Trail—another wide gravel logging road. In just a few hundred feet, head south on the second trail into the forest, 0.3 miles from the trailhead, marked by a small rock cairn (and also marked by "Mt. WA" etched on tree trunk). This is the start of the Mount Washington Trail.
At about 2 miles, there is a fork. Left fork goes to Bob's area. Aug 2, 2016
