Details

DIFFICULTY: hard, but not too crazy. Elevation gain is 500 feet over a two mile loop

NO ADVENTURE PASS IS NEEDED TO PARK YOUR CAR. BRING LEATHER GLOVES TO HELP KEEP YOUR HANDS IN ONE PIECE.

DIRECTIONS: start at the 210 freeway and the Angeles Crest Highway (Highway 2). Drive up the hill on Highway 2 for 35 miles and the only restaurant you will see is Newcomb's ranch. (It is about two miles uphill from Chilao campground). We meet at the north end of Newcomb's Ranch parking lot at 1:30 PM. The Drive from the 210 to Newcomb's takes about 1 hour.

We will car-convoy 2 miles north of Newcomb's Ranch restaurant. On the hill in front of us will be 5 collections of adventurous and climbable granite monolith

WHAT YOU SHOULD BRING: I'm not your mom. This is rock scrambling. So bring grippy shoes, a hat, lots of water, maybe gloves

(trivia: JohnHenge is either named after the national forest restroom at the north trailhead, or famed hike leader That John guy, who discovered them)
