Park at dirt roundabout near informational sign. Just up from the roundabout is a gate with a metal pin you can use as a lever to raise the wire loop over the post, and open the gate. Continue along the road, there will be a fork at the beginning, leads to a lookout on the right. Continue on the two-track road for ~1.5 miles. There is a wood post that marks the end of the road. Past this post you can follow some deer-made trails. We turned around where trails were not evident and the area was a wide space of sagebrush, but it is probably possible to go further.

Remote area with an awe-inspiring view up close to the rim of the canyon. Lots of wyoming sagebrush and crested wheatgrass. Tons of birds - saw a loggerhead shrike on my way in. Take your time with this hike.
