A 2 minute approach will get you to this surprisingly good beginner area. The holds are juggy and the landings clean with a safe topout to round out an easy entry into bouldering outside.

Getting There 

Head East on the main trail towards the water tower. Take the first trail that heads south. The boulders will be obvious from there.

Climbing Season

For the Foothills Bouldering area.
