Description 

Lots of variety at this Parking Pull off...the rocks aren't at the parking area, but rather across the parkway and down hill...good bit of bushwhacking involved to reach some, whereas other boulders are right off the A.T. if following it south.

Bouldering and top rope are main attractions to this area.

Getting There 

From Afton Mtn, or MP 0, head south on Parkway until about MP 9...if heading south designated parking spot will be on LEFT.
