Description

Hidden up in the trees, you will find a temple of orange rock. Slabby face climbs lead to a large ledge to top out on. Capped by a big roof. Do you have what it takes to sit atop the throne??

Getting There

Start at the 42nd Street parking lot. Head west down the main Buttermilk Trail. (Take a left.) Take the stone steps or the ramp/footbridge on the right. The loop trail splits off to the left, known as the Quarry Loop trail. The temple is hidden in the woods west of the loop trail.

A tree has fallen across the original access trail. There is a shortcut trail about 10 paces past the Quarry Loop/Buttermilk Trail sign in the photo. It's on the left as you approach from the 42nd Street parking lot.
