This is the first bouldering area that you come upon while hiking up the Gutter wash. It is marked by a very big boulder right in the middle of the wash. It is the size of a small house and about 15' tall. There is another boulder behind this that is the same size. Welcome to the Lower Gutter boulder field.

Getting There 

Hike down the nature trail and cross the big dry creek bed, go straight and left to the smaller dried creek bed and keep hiking up the wash for about a half mile.
