Wonderland Traverse Professional Review and Guide
"Travel through the Wonderland of Rocks is arduous, involving constant up and down climbing on gigantic granite boulders. It is seldom possible to see more than 100 yards ahead of you and there are few landmarks, so simply describing a route in most parts of the Wonderland is nearly impossible. A rare exception is Wonderland Traverse, which follows a well-defined wash full of jumbo rocks between Willow Hole and Rattlesnake Canyon. Even though this stretch is only 1.5 miles long, it will take hours of challenging scrambling to get through. This is no place for inexperienced hikers, especially those traveling alone. An interesting attraction on this hike is the valley of Oh-bay-yo-yo, where locals have built and maintained a fascinating “fortress” beneath an overhanging boulder. The Wonderland of Rocks is a day-use area; no camping is allowed."
