There was no sign at all, so when you're walking from Gorge 400 trail (from wahclella falls Trail head), look for a steep climb up. The beginning of the hike is easy, until you get to the turnoff point to go up the hill to Munra Point. At this point you will be hiking up a steep and rocky hill, and will need to use caution as injuries and fatalities have occurred.  Expect a long and narrow path ahead until you reach the top. There might be a lot of times when you are using your hands to climb up the rugged trail. The view is amazing beyond belief and is worth the hike. This hike is for experienced hikers or thrill seekers looking for a challenge.
