Contains the excellent Diamond Boulder, and the less excellent Swamp Boulder, plus one more.

Getting There 

The trail skirts the north side of the beaver pond and then wraps around the west side, heading south. As it heads south it begins to rise above the pond. Right after it starts to rise, you reach a point where the tread of the trail is rock instead of dirt, and blackberry bushes are on your right. Look over your right shoulder and you will see the Diamond and Swamp boulders lying some 50 feet into the woods.
