DescriptionThe first large area of boulders you pass by when approaching from the road. Now more of a "clearcut", as many of the boulders are surrounded by tall, dense brush.
You will use a different approach depending on which side of the clearcut you are going to. See directions on the individual pages or pick up a copy of the excellent 'Western Washington Bouldering' which makes navigating Gold Bar much easier.
Working Timberland Details
April 19, 2017: Weekday access to the Gold Bar boulders has now reopened following a temporary closure to ensure public safety during harvest activities associated with the Dyno timber sale. In partnership with Access Fund and Washington Climbers Coalition, DNR preserved access to much of the road network hikers and climbers use to access the Gold Bar boulders. Learn more about getting outdoors on DNR-managed lands on our website: dnr.wa.gov/go
Getting ThereApproach as for the 5-Star Boulder, but continue on the trail uphill until you run into a recent clearcut. Bushwhack uphill and across the clearcut until you hit the main gravel road. Follow this road uphill until you eventually run into a fork. A right will get you to the eastern areas, a left will get you to the western areas.
