Loved this. If you like rock formations then you will appreciate this. Only takes 20mins or so depending on how long you want to explore. Worth the drive in our opinion.

Alternate route to Wild Dog Rock and a much better road is to head out on the Iron Knob road. At the Speedway turn right and follow this road, cross the grid and there are signs directing you to the rock.
