15 miles north of Buena Vista is the small town of Granite, Colorado. Just south of town, on the east side of the tracks are numerous small crags with the same gritty granite as Buena Vista. "The Granite Block" is one of the 1st substantial nuggets you'll see coming from the north up above the railroad tracks to the east....

Getting There 

Cross the bridge in Granite and turn south. Follow the left edge of the tracks downstream....
