There are some really good places to climb. The fastest way to get to the cliffs by foot is by Ballard Trail from Range Road. Range Road is on the left just before you enter the park. It's the same way to the shooting range. There is a sign that says Ballard Trail just before you get to the shooting range.
The Trail up to the boulders is a good 20 minute hike and it is steep. The shooting range near by is kind of unsettling.
Another way to get to the other side of Ballard Trail is by Mountain Bike on Middle Ridge Road.
CAUTION: We nearly stepped on a Timber Rattlesnake the last time we went on the trail! It was coiled under some leaves that were hanging over the trail. Be careful! We took pictures and left it alone, but it was a good reminder to keep the critters in mind!
