Description

This place should be named Lost Gem. Groom Creek like boulders surrounded by amazing views of Thumb Butte, Grantite Mountain, Downtown Prescott, Mogollon Rim, San Fransisco Peaks, and the Sierra Prietta Mountains. Water has eroded some of the rocks into some unique formations.

There are two main piles of boulders just off the road but a little exploring of the area seems to reveal some lonely boulders that might be worth checking out. Look to the south and down the drainage.

Check out Bill Cramer's Guide book for more information (maps ect...)

Getting There

From the Thumb Butte parking lot continue west down paved road. Keep right at the intersection of Dearing Re. and Thumb Butte Rd. Continue for about .5 miles down Dearing Rd. Start looking to your left for very obvious large pile of rocks and a pullout. There is an old dirt road that has been covered in debre just in front. Park at this pullout and head towards the boulders (short walk). If you start seeing private residences you went too far.
