Access Issue: Working Timberland Details


The boulders located below Zeke's Wall in the forest above the clear cut. The area can be divided into the West, Middle, and East Forest. To access the west area turn left at the major fork and park in the west parking area. To access the East Forest turn right at the major fork and park in the east parking area. The boulders are generally smaller than those found in the clear cut. The boulders can get very mossy so bring some brushes. In the summer the mosquitoes can be vicious.

Getting There

Take Hwy. 2 East to Gold Bar. After you pass Gold Bar take a left on Reiter Rd. Follow Reiter Rd. At the 2.1 mile mark take a left onto a large gravel rd. Follow this road under the powerlines to a sharp right turn and head up the ridge. Stay on this gravel road. It will pass an orange gate and continue up the mountain. The road will switch back several times until you end up in a clear-cut with many prominent, large white boulders. The boulders are spread out over this clearing and up into the forest below the cliff.

Looks fun. Where is Doja? Is that in the East Forest? That boulder is supposed to have a bunch of cool lines on it. Apr 11, 2006

I am pretty sure the problem you are looking for [Doja (V7)] is on the very left side of the East forest. From the East parking area walk up into the woods maybe 20 meters and then head west in the woods. You will come to a series (3 or 4) of really large (3 story) boulders. I call them the hondo boulders. They are hard to miss. There are some sick high lines and long,long traverses on these. I think Doja is on the extreme southwestern corner of the boulders.

when is the "season" at gold bar? Snow during winter? How quickly dies area dry up in spring or after rains?
thanks Feb 24, 2007
Does anyone know if the west forest is closed. When i went up there there road to the west forest was too overgrown to walk up? Aug 24, 2015
Went to forest area but the dirt road described was closed. Very limited parking on the street and the approach with the road closure was about 45 minutes. Am I just missing something? Or is this just what it is like now? Jun 20, 2016

Tina -
Maybe it has to do with temporary road work for the timber harvest. Did you see the notice in the dashed-red box above the description?

You might check with MP user Joe Sambataro, who works for the Access Fund and posts some of these notices here. Jun 20, 2016
