On the Top Rock Trail, this area is where the Caves Trail branches off and starts. There is quite a bit of talus here. Currently, two nice boulder problems (The Bubbler and Before the Storm) are located here.

Getting There 

From the Top Rock parking lot, hike up the trail. You will come across one giant boulder on the trail, branch left and continue. You will come across a second giant boulder on the trail after a few minutes hike. Stay to the right side of this boulder and continue over the fallen tree. A few yards up you will see the cairn marking the start of the faint Caves Trail. From the cairn, look up and right along the Top Rock trail and you should see The Bubbler on the right hand side of the Top Rock trail.

From the Top Rock parking lot to this area is about 0.48 miles.
