Due to the influx of climbers during the COVID-19 pandemic, the residents of the Hillcrest area have been suffering from substantial parking problems that, if left unchecked, may threaten access to the Vacaville Boulders.
Please utilize the alternative parking options listed under the “Location” sub section in the area description
The Woodcrest boulders feature four main areas; the Woodcrest Ridge Boulders, The Maze, The Basin Boulders and the Light Pole Boulders. All are approached from the same trailhead and in the same general area, but far enough apart with natural breaks between them to warrant separating them into their own designated sub areas.
The area as a whole hosts a rather tight concentration of boulders in close proximity to one another and consequently, as a whole, home to the largest overall number of routes at the Nut Tree Boulders, unlike the much more spread out nature of the Hillcrest boulders. Coupled with it's high visibility from the road and comparatively short approaches, has made the Woodcrest boulders the most popular venue at the Nut Tree Boulders.
The general tight proximity of the boulders make it easy to set up a nice circuit or maximize the number of potential routes you can do if you're on a tight schedule. It's also a great place for those who like to explore a bit, as no matter which direction you wander off from the main area, you're almost bound to run into another set of boulders eventually. When bouldering out here remember, there's almost always something else just around the corner.
Park along the street next too (not in front of) the cattle gate and walk up the gravel road behind the houses. Be respectful of the home owners when walking behind their houses and keep an eye on your dogs. Walk about 100 yards up the gravel road to another cattle gate. Throw your pad over the gate if you have one and slip through the narrow passage way to the left of the gate instead of climbing over it. Follow the trail and veer off to the left and right when appropriate. There is good climbing on both sides.
