|Big Point Adjacent
to the fault alignment of Willow Canyon and Stairway Canyon, Big Point is the
major topographic barrier of this region. For Esplanade hikers, the
significance must not be surpassed for the physical presence and natural
resources of this very-particular place. This was also an important
location for early humans and was likely occupied and well-defended from entry
The Esplanade rim of Big Point provides rock overhang shelter and pothole water sources. This requires an excursion from the Tuckup Trail track, and for hikers is a must-find and must-stop.
