Amphitheater climbs are one of the closest to the parking lot and are easily accessible from the railroad tracks via a marked trail.

Getting There 

As you walk from the parking area along the railroad tracks, the Amphitheater climbs are visible on the left from the trestle. The trail leading directly to Pegasus and Chia starts just before the bridge.
