Description 

Sweet Willie Boulder is a Rhyolite boulder 15+ feet tall in a small aspen grove. I have never seen anyone on this boulder unless they were with me. It has perfect rock with zero approach, so go figure.

Getting There 

Sweet Willie Boulder is North of the Piedra River about 6 miles on road to Williams Reservoir just past Williams Creek Campground. It is 20 feet off road on your right. The pullout for parking is just past the boulder.
