The Big Top from The Little Top, Joshua Tree NP


This is the first large formation on the left (south) of The Boy Scout Trail. Several routes have been done. I don't know any of their names.

Getting There 

Walk the Boy Scout Trail for about 15 minutes. This formation will be seen to the south, shortly before the Monkey's Paw to the north.

This formation is also easily approached by hiking another 500 meters north from the Big Top.
