Description 

These boulders lie 20 feet from the upper parking area loop.

In the late 70's we had somewhat of a tradition of getting together and celebrating birthdays here. It was open to camping then. We would party boldly and boulder until our hands could take no more.

Getting There 

From Buttermilk Road, drive up the hill with the boulders on your right, go over a cattle guard and make an immediate right. Take your next right into the parking area/loop. The Birthday Boulders are the closest to the parking loop.
