The Mordor Boulder Area is comprised of three fallout zones. A recent rockslide from the upper cliffs deposited several boulders below. The rock quality is different from other Garfield boulderfields, as the duration of weathering has been relatively short. Any development requires a fair amount of cleaning, as many of the boulders are covered in a thick film of mud.
From the trailhead's parking lot, head east on the dirt road for about one hundred yards. This will eventually turn into a hiking path that leads up a short hill. Once at the hill's apex, leave the path and head down the hill toward the east. You'll eventually hit a pair of stormwater basins and the boulder area. Reference the page map for greater clarification.
