Description Suggest change

The boulders in this area are situated right off of the Buttermilk Trail that parallels Riverside Drive on the Southside. The only outlier is the Walker Texas ranger boulder, which is along Riverside Drive, but on the west side of Westover Hills Blvd.

Getting There Suggest change

Parking can be found along Riverside Drive at the gravel lot just East of 42nd St, the 42nd St paved lot (if open, usually just parallel spots across from the gate), or a 3 car gravel pull-off just west of Southcliff Rd.
