The entrance to the parking lot is off Amherst. Park and head towards the playground. At the NE corner of the playground you will find a trailhead marked with a sign: Picnic Area/Horseshoes. Follow this trail across the creek bed which is usually dry. Climb up the tree root steps and follow the path past the prickly pears. At the clearing, take the left fork. Follow the path across the clearing between two multi-branched oaks. When you come to the trees on the other side of the clearing, you will see a tree root that crosses the trail. Follow the trail 43 steps from this root. You will pass a flat rock in the trail and then three large rocks in the middle and to the left of the path. Take another 20 steps past the group of three rocks. you will see another group of three large rock on the right side of the trail.
