Private property all along the old access road. Access from Rocky Run ATV trail is all on NF land. MORE INFO >>>

Description 

A set of incredible boulders on top of a scenic knob just off Rte 33 W, about 15 miles W of Harrisonburg in Rawley Springs. Some hunter and ATV traffic, seasonally, but a beauty location especially in the late summer and fall.

Getting There 

Take Rte 33W from Harrisonburg to Rawley Springs. Wind through the S curve above the river and look for 2nd Mtn Rd on your right. Pass this and look for Rocky Run about 100yds further on, on the R. follow RR to parking loop at end and hike upstream to find ATV trail on R bank. 45 minute hike to summit, 35 on the return. Trail can be rough or a bit loose and muddy. At end of trail (intersection with fire road), turn L and follow uphill for about 100 yds. boulders are obvious, sitting on R shoulder of road.

The Dr. Topo guide is good there have been twenty or so good problems done in the area since it was put out, but there are still a lot of projects to go. If anybody is in the area and wants to get out there let me know.
