Description Suggest change

Park at Buford Dam Lower Pool East ($5). While this is the best place to park, note that it's on the wrong side of the river, so from the loop and the end of the road where you park, walk across the field towards the dam and you'll find a bridge, a trail, and another bridge to get you across to the other side. Once across the bridge, turn right and follow social trails along the bank of the river, crossing multiple drainages until you come to the rocks. 

Getting There Suggest change

Take BE01-BE02-BE03-BE04 Trails(via TrailRunProject) till adjacent with Bowman Island. Water rise sign G15 is beginning of the boulder collection(LongRoof).
