From the visitor center at the South entrance, take the Inner Canyon Trail to the creek bottom. Head up the hill to the NE when you before you get to the power line. The Playground is about 150 yards East of the Juggernaut area.

One of the best sites in CWC for short challenging sport routes. Very accessable from the trail. Great on sunny fall/winter days. Not too busy usually.
