The Hillside Boulder is about 12 feet high and has two main faces for climbing. The first face is orange and faces the parking lot. The second face is green and faces Great Woods Road.
Park at the main parking lot for Lynn Woods. Pass through the mini-stone towers and walk uphill on the wide dirt road,(Great Woods Road) for about 200 feet. Then look to your left and you will see a perched boulder about 150 feet up on the hill.
