Description Suggest change

In between Tatooine and Land of the Lost. Has some of the longest climbs at Fairview.

Getting There Suggest change

20 minute hike from the parking area. Hike up the main trail that weaves uphill through the rocks. Hike around the left side of the Tatooine area, and continue through the pass between Vader Roof and the Twin Towers. You should now be next to the Sidewinder wall, and be able to see most of the Middle Earth Valley.

You can also hike up the Canyon trail which will take you past the Hoodie, Alf rock, Fairview Dome, and then into Middle Earth Valley.
