Access Issue: Area is currently closed - Private Property Details
Please note that there is currently no access to this area, and if you drive down the road, you will be asked by the land owners to turn around and leave.
This is a secluded, awesome pristine bouldering area, with super quality granite boulders and blocks spread out in a meadowesque setting.
Drive I-70 a few miles west of Idaho Springs to the Fall River Road exit, head north for several miles, approximately 9, towards St. Mary Glacier. At a hair-pin turn look for Rainbow Road, hang a left on this dirt road and wind your way up, 4 wheel, bumpy, but accessible, towards the reservoir, several miles. You'll pass many primitive camp grounds, before reaching the reservoir. Park at south end of the reservoir and hike around the reservoir's right, east side following a single trailway to the opposite end of the reservoir. At the opposite end head up on the right side of the water fall. and creek eventually crossing over towards the top. Continue up, usually wild flower gardens, into the open basin and you will see the granite boulders up on the left, as well as some on the right side of the basin. Very snowy til mid or end of summer.
