  • Description 

    Water Rock is a cool boulder along the creekside, facing mostly south-southwest. Gets good sun, and tends to be less crowded than the Gill Boulder just upstream.

    Getting There 

    Parking near the end of the road heading up the canyon, on your right just as you pass over a small bridge. This is the same parking area as The Gill Boulder, Supremacy Rock, and to access the Rincon trail. The water rock is just down the trail east of the parking lot, you can also see it downstream from the bridge.
