About The Perimeter:

The Perimeter is a cluster of boulders sitting on a sandstone shelf. These boulders are above Jared's Boulder and the No Substance areas. It is visible from Maxi Pad across the canyon.
Approach: If you want to be totally legitimate, hike straight up from Jared's Boulder. Go up to a big sand stone bowl and on top of it is the shelf that holds the boulders. But there is a much easier approach. To best approach it, park a little before the Trail Mine. A reclamation area offers an easy hike up a gentle slope that heads down canyon. It is on the opposite side of the mines. A trail will traverse the mountain side and end up at The Perimeter. Look for a sign that says "Perimeter, do not disturb" and follow the trail past it. At this point, you are on Forest Service land.
Approach Time: 10 min

Access Issues: The approach starting at the Trail mine is one of the easiest approach for a hill side, but this may be trespassing on the mine's property. The mine is closed so no one is there to protest. However, use this information at your own risk.
