Description 

In the woods on the mountain side, easily accessible without the big crowds

Getting There 

To see a map of the Sourland Mountain Preserve: somersetcountyparks.org/genInf...

From the main parking area, take the main trail toward the North side of the mountain. It's marked with a 1 on the trail map (link above) and markers for this trail have a picture of a tree on it. Stay on the main trail and keep right (North) at all junctions. When you get to the C junction, take a left to head up the C trail, which heads straight through the Southfield boulders. Most of the boulder problems are right on the trail as it goes up a steep part of the hill. If you see the Half Moon Area boulders, you missed the C trail turn.

GPS coordinates for the first boulder in the Southfield area:
Lat: N 40°28'31.11" (40.47531)
Lon: W 74°42'8.25" (-74.70229)
