From the parking lot, it’s not extremely obvious where the trail to the boulder field starts. When pulling into the parking lot, it’s on the left. Look for a sign explaining the trail and two directional posts. The trail on the right is the shortest to get to the rocks.

The hike to the rocks is quite short, maybe a quarter to a half a mile. It’s an easy hike, but not stroller-friendly as there are many rocks along the path, too.

Once you arrive at the rocks, there’s a small directional sign, though it’s pretty obvious that you’ve arrived at the boulder field.

A hammer is needed to experience the “ring” in the rocks, so you’ll need to supply your own hammer. Note that different rocks will make different sounds. Look for the indentions in the rocks where other people have hit them to find the best sounds.

Following the water upstream, there are a few more cascades of water that are worth checking out. Note that it’s not easy to reach the water from this trail, but it’s a great spot to see it.
