Description

Sever Block:

As you approach the Sever Boulder from the trail this will be the first portion of the whole part of the Sever Block (the separated block from the main boulder. This will be the closest face to the trail.

To find "Esmeralda" find the dead tree lying on the block. Stand start directly under it with hands matched on the low undercling ledge. Establish feet, pull on, and climb directly up to gain the edge under the tree itself. Trend right from under the tree, and top out to the right of the tree itself. Tree is off...

Location

At the very end of the LRT (if you come down from the upper lookout past the MOW) this will be the final area before the loop is finished and you are deposited back to your car.

Alternately, if you simply hike downhill from the lower lot instead of hiking the normal loop starting at the upper lookout, this will be the very first area you come to, and it isn’t very close to the lot.
If you hike down from the lower lot, look for the Trails End Boulder which will be on the right and just off the trail. At this point, you have passed the Sever Block (but the directions are simpler this way). Turn around and look to your left off trail a bit and the Sever Boulder & Block are there. This is the long, giant boulder laying long ways up the hill side which has the tip severed cleanly forming a separate smaller block. The Sever Block has a large dead tree that has fallen to rest on the top of it.

The directions are the same if you hike all the way around from the MOW Area. Hike past the Autumn Area and when you reach the next area which will be signaled by the Trails End Boulder (a large egg-on-it’s-side shaped boulder just off the left side of the trail). When you reach the Trails End Boulder, look up to your left off trail a bit and the Sever Boulder & Block are there. This is the long, giant boulder laying long ways up the hill side which has the tip severed cleanly forming a separate smaller block. The Sever Block has a large dead tree that has fallen to rest on the top of it.
