All three routes are seen in this photo, including...
Hogwild is the western end of the Hogsback, and is the closest climbing to the campground.
To get to Hogwild, you take a path at the end of the parking lot loop. That is, drive around the parking lot. Right before the loop closes and you exit, there is a path heading north to the river. Take this path, following some telephone poles. The path cuts east and parallels the river, although not too close to the bank. Continue walking for approximately 5 minutes to reach Hogwild.

It's Better with Bacon 5.8 5b 16 VI- 15 HVS 4c CA
: Tahoe Vicinity
: ... : Hogwild
It's Better with Bacon is a good route on a nice slab on Hogwild. The star rating is for the first 3 pitches.P1: start up a thin right trending crack. when it peters out, step right into another very thin right trending crack. The cracks are very thin, and take small nuts, but the moves are slab moves.P2: Straight up a 5.6 slab past 3 protection bolts.P3: Up a 12' crack to a bolted 5.6 slab. There is a 5.8 roof that must be surmounted at the end of the pitch, very fun!...[more] Browse More Classics in CA

The trail that is marked in the Falcon Guide that takes you to Accessory Dogs above the boulders does not exist, do not go that way :)
