Description Suggest change

Located between the old power house and Rainbow Bridge, this is a small cluster of granite boulders ranging from about 8 to 15 feet tall. Landings very from flat and perfect to just don't fall. Some have been cleaned, but a few still sit buried in moss and thorny blackberry bushes. Please keep the area clean and pack out whatever trash you bring, as the homeless under the bridge have already left enough trash to pick up. **Watch for poison oak.**

You can check the Folsom Powerhouse State Historic Park website for current information.

Getting There Suggest change

You can either walk through the historic powerhouse park back towards Rainbow Bridge, or walk along the American River Bike Trail, then duck under the bridge. The rocks will be another 50 yards ahead.
