Description Suggest change

This is the first big boulder on the left while walking up towards Higher Cathedral Rock.

Getting There Suggest change

From the parking turnout. Find a trail that takes you into the woods towards the Valley Loop Trail. Make a left onto the Valley Loop Trail until you see another faint trail that goes up the hill. It will either be right there or less than a minute away. Follow this trail for a few more minutes and bear left and you should see the Hex Boulder.
