Rock Garden from the 401 boulder


A secluded south facing collection of bluff line and a bunch of boulders. Some big some small, exploration still needs to be done.

Boulder # 401 - High up just next to cliff band. Has a striking finger crack right up the middle.
Grey Boulder - Large boulder close to the horse trail.
Boulder Garden - A collection of smaller boulders on the next small bluff over. Due east from #401 by about 100yrds
Good Day Governor Boulder - South side of the horse trail, just over a very small bluff.

Getting There 

Continue down the main road (past the turnoff for group site B and the qual wall) toward twin valley lake. Park just past a large horse trail in a mini parking lot. Hike east (away from the lake) on the horse trail. Stay left on the main trail for about an 8 min walk. You should see a few large boulders just off the left hand side of the trail beneath some powerlines. Hike into the woods towards these boulders, and see what you can find.

You can walk straight up the trail that start across from the further driveway, and it meets up with the horse trail.
