Getting There 

Hike east from the parking area following an old road which forks - take the left fork heading north and pass the ruins of an old building - Uncle Willie's Health Food Store (Photo). Make a left, enter a wash passing through some trees and then follow the wash as it turns right heading north. The trail stays mainly in the wash but there are times when it is easier to stay above the wash. The approach from the car takes about 15 - 30 minutes.
