Description 

Great overhung boulder pretty close to picnic area (not same parking lot as Humpback Rock hiking area!)

Getting There 

Drive past Humpback Rock Parking area until about MP 8.5 and will see large sign and turnoff for the separate picnic area. Pull off on shoulder and walk north in the woods a bit to find boulder. Boulder is visible from road when no foliage.
