"A short but steep ascent to the top of a high, rocky outcropping, offering dramatic views. Boulder Hill is one of the special features found along the Flume Trail #50 and makes another nice side trip on the Flume Trail #50 hike - or a good jaunt just for its own sake. Located south of Spring Creek Loop and the Boulder Hill Trailhead, this short, steep spur-hike is well worth the effort. Upon the reaching the 5,331-foot summit, it is a photographers dream."
