Description Suggest change

Ironically, the Hidden Boulder is one of the biggest of the Hillcrest boulders, but that doesn't prevent it from being hidden as you approach it. But once you get there you'll find numerous problems with a few of them being extremely highball. The (downhill) side of the rock is where you'll find the highball stuff on vertical faces, and the steeper stuff is uphill from that and much shorter.

Getting There Suggest change

From the Saddle Boulders, take the well-maintained trail above them up hill to the right. The trail ascends a steep slope then turns slightly to the left going to the top of the hill. Stay on this trail until you see the hidden boulder on your right about 50 feet off the trail. You can't miss it.
