Hi Mike,

Here are the directions I have, do keep in mind it has been 15 or more years since the aborted attempt to get there!

From I25, take exit #79 on the north side of T or C. Proceed south on Date street to 9th street. Go west (right) on 9th a short distance till you come to I25. At this point there is/was a very narrow tunnel under I25. The time we tried going there, we decided it would be foolish to try to squeeze through, and we were drving a small pickup. We had other places on our agenda that day, so skipped this one.(Had no idea how rough the one mile hike would be, and I have a knee in a brace, so I try my best to avoid rough hikes)

On the far side of the tunnel is(was) a ranch road which goes northwest about one mile to the south side of a mountain with a large antenna on top. At the one mile point at the base of the mountain is where the Candy Rock/picture rock (a banded rhyolite) is found.

Later, when we looked at the local BLM Land Status map, it looke as though it should also be possible to access the location from ranch roads coming from the north.

Hope this gives you enough info to continue your quest.

Becky
