The Meadow is an amazing area! Every bit as high quality as the New River Gorge. In general, most routes are over 5.10. Some true classics are here! This area has increased in popularity in the last few years since its inclusion in the Cater Guide, 3rd Edition. And with better information now available with the release of the Williams guide, the traffic has certainly increased.
For the most popular areas at the Meadow (Lower Meadow and the First, Second, and Third Buttress)turn left on to Underwood Road immediately after crossing the bridge heading north on 19.

Do not block the entrances to the ATV trails. If this parking area is full, don't park on the road, go back to the bottom of the hill and park in the large gravel lot there. Some folks park on the side of 19 just before the bridge, however there is a no parking sign there, so use some caution. The length of the approach and directions vary, depending on the area you intend to climb.
