Description

Along western edge of park in portion of the park where it is not accessible off-trail. Looks down on huge complex to the north.

Access can be gained by hiking steeply uphill, with permission from the owners, via the small closed quarry whose entrance road is a hundred yards west, uphill on Deer Creek Road, from the western edge line of the park. Parking is available along the south side of the road; many people park here and access the north portion of Deer Creek O.S.Park via an unofficial trailhead here.

Once you leave the road walk up the paved entrance road, passing by the closed gate, for a hundred yards. Turn right (E) and walk up a manmade swale and curve left (due N) uphill. Proceed west of the park land, as loosely defined by an ancient wire fence with metal posts, to the top of the ridge. There is a lot of scrub oak; but there is always a clear way through upward. At ~6,840' steer eastward past one N-S set of fence posts which seem to demarcate an inner barrier for the quarry, and reach the section line which is also demarcated by fence posts.

At the point where the fenceline crests up and over the east trending ridge, find a cairn under an oak tree. Hot and dry much of the year.
