Description

This area is fairly spread out, and will get sun from sunrise until the late afternoon. With the black rock and its orientation, it makes for a prime late fall and early spring area.

Getting There

From the standard parking areas, walk along the road, staying on the river side of the guardrail until you find yourself below the sport cave. Keep an eye out for cars and make a quick dash to the scramble up to the cave.
