We'll post more on this as we learn more, but the Black Wave Area is about a mile past Bone Park. There's a pull-off on the right hand side. Follow the trail to a good chunk of boulders. The first boulder you pass will be the Brain Boulder. While this may not be traditionally a part of the Black Wave Area, it's close enough to group them all together.
Go past Bone Park about a mile and park in the pulloff.
Per Nick Reecy
: the area is more than 2 miles from Bone Park. This area can be accessed from four pullouts, they are located between 6.9 and 7.3 miles if approaching from the intersection of US 50/CO Highway 141. The pullouts are located on the west side of CO Highway 141.
