There is a path beside the house which goes to an access road a short distance behind the house. Follow this road for about 1 mile where you will see a bicycle trail off to the left. There should be a cairn at this junction.
This trail first dips down and up through a wash and then travels across the flats to the rim edge. You can follow the rim around passing above Huber Wash and then Rockville.
