Description

The furthest down the road of the main areas at Coopers. A bit more crowded than Tilted Tree or Roadside, especially with non-climber tourist hikers, who love to ask you questions.

Getting There

Drive to the end of the road, to where there is a concession stand and a turnaround/parking area. Hike to the left of the building, staying to the right of the main overlook trails. Shortly, you will see an obvious break through a cliff-line, which has some slab steps set into it. This will take you down to the Rattlesnake Trail, which runs along most of the great bouldering areas here.
