Set out on this trail after seeing pics of the waterfall on FB. 3 days of rain make for some beautiful flow! Trail is easy and more well worn than expected. We departed from Lost Goldmine East and trekked towards Carney. After the Carney/Wave Cave split there will be another cairned trail to the right. Follow this up and to the left of the Shaka Cave. As aforementioned, if you see the decayed tortoise shell you're on the right path! Hug the cliffs (which also provided a great place to dry off!) and you'll be rewarded with a refreshing views at the end!

We departed from Peralta TH for this hike, instead of Carney like some. From Fremont Saddle, head up and left into the hoodoos - the trail is somewhat cairned and worn. When you get to the "gunslinger" rock, the trip to the roost is a somewhat free-for-all. Scramble down and to the right, using the map to get you to the general area. Amazing hidden gem! There are several ways into the roost, depending on your skill level, as well as a book inside to sign.

NOTE: if you take Peralta to the Roost, the trail from Fremont to the Roost is very exposed, so either take plenty of water or go on a cooler day. I'd love to take the Carney/Dacite route up next!
average hiking speed 1.78 mph
