Real Hidden Valley Bouldering is made up of the Real Hidden Valley Circuit, which is centered around the namesake Real Hidden Valley, and the Turtle Rock Circuit, which is just to the south and centered about the large mass of Turtle Rock.
Park in the large Real Hidden Valley parking area (it can get very crowded on the weekends and during the holidays and spring break) and make a short walk to the boulders. Betty Jo Yablonski and the aptly named Entrance Boulder are visible at the start of the nature trail, while the Saturday Night Live Boulder lies to the west along a trail on the way to Houser Buttress.
