The Contact Boulder is more obscure and tricky to find than the others in the Contact Station Area, but itís one of the best.
Walk the road past the pay-booth. As you're walking down the road look to the left for a gravel road with a DO NOT ENTER sign on it. This sign is to keep out traffic from going to private property. Walk down and stay on the road (donít turn right as to continue further downhill). Look for a bulge in the landscape about 40 yards downhill and this is the rear of the boulder, you cannot see the main face since its oriented downhill.
