The Hillside comprises all the boulders from the parking lot to the first stream you encounter on the main trail. This area has tons of boulders and lots of potential for FA's. Expect some less than perfect landings, but nothing a few pads can't fix.

Getting There 

From the parking lot, follow the main trail and head uphill on various small trails depending on which boulder you are trying to find.
