The Roadsides comprise a small bouldering area on the upper part of the Tablelands. Parking is extremely limited. Please use existing pullouts to prevent damage to the desert vegetation. I should not have to say this but I will, do not climb on the petroglyphs. There are no restroom facilities.
From downtown Bishop follow 395 (Main Street) north to Highway 6 toward Chalfant/Tonopah. This is the intersection near the Vons where 395 goes left and Highway 6 continues straight. Continue on 6, making a right on Five Bridges Rd (~1.8 mi). After the vermiculite plant the road veers left joining Jean Blanc. You will reach an obvious intersection with Chalk Bluff Rd (the road to reach the Happies/Sads), Casa Diablo, and Fish Slough. Take Casa Diablo (dirt) uphill. Look for an unsigned road on your right just after it levels out. If you hit the road to the upper Sads lot you've gone too far. The Roadsides road is rocky at the beginning, crossing some tuff slabs. I took my old Mini out here once, but it helps to have more clearance. Drive to the end of the road where there's a pullout for 3-5 cars.
