Description

This area includes many great walls (such as the steep and popular Stephen King Library, the Solstice Cave, the Image Wall, The Inner Circle, etc.) that lie along the Clear Creek River.

Getting There

Park off of Doc Howard Road (the lone turnoff on the left just before dropping down the hill to the Lilly Bridge). The parking area is in a privately-owned grassy field on the right about 200 yards up the road. Leave a dollar or two in the little container at the trailhead to keep this privilege open.

Approach to the various walls depends on where you're heading, but basically take the obvious trail into the woods and follow it as it curves to the left along the ridgeline. See specific walls for more directions.
