Getting There

Driving on hwy#198 past Lake Kaweah after going through Visalia and just before the town of Three Rivers, CA is the turnout for Slickrock Recreation area. The boulders will be covered by the lake March - June.

There are TWO parking lots: one near the road and one down, near the river. Take the second to park the car, walk down the ramp and turn to the left once you have reached the river bank. On this side of the river there are two rows of boulders. The boulders of the lower row are a bit more polished - I guess due to high water during summer. The boulders of the upper row - some have graffiti - are more yellowish and less polished, even pretty sharp. All boulders are surprisingly 'clean', i.e. without moss or vegetation. Across the river is a whole field of boulders.
