Description 

These sit east of Lion's Head on the far west end of the park.

Getting There 

Hike or bike from the trailhead on Staunton Ranch trail until it turns into Bugling Elk. Follow Bugling Elk to the Elk Pond Cabin, and bushwhack due south along an old road. The road eventually peters out, and you will have to continue cross country to the crags.
