The Wonderland of Rocks is a large labyrinth of granite formations and meandering corridors.  It’s an easy place to get lost, but it’s also full of secret, picture-postcard settings, wide-eyed views, and any number of natural surprises.  We will park at Barker Dam and walk the nature trail to the lake bed and follow the wash into the Wonderland of Rocks where we will scramble up to the top of the South Astrodome where we will view the entire Wonderland of Rocks.  The hike will loop through the Wonderland to Wall Street Mill and back to Barker Dam.
