It probably has another name but we couldn't find one on any maps. This is the southern of two islands of rock located at the wide, expansive mouth of Little Wild Horse Canyon. Like most of the desert, things arean't always what they seem until you get up to them and actually climb them.

Getting There 

Use a forest service map and find your way to the backside of the Bells and Little Wild Horse canyons. The Bells Canyon trail was a lot easier and is best suited for most stock SUV's. The one directly in to Little Wild Horse is probably a 3+ to 4 in a couple of sections and having a wide vehicle wouldn't be an option for this jeep trail.
