Description

Hogwild is the western end of the Hogsback, and is the closest climbing to the campground.

Getting There

To get to Hogwild, you take a path at the end of the parking lot loop. That is, drive around the parking lot. Right before the loop closes and you exit, there is a path heading north to the river. Take this path, following some telephone poles. The path cuts east and parallels the river, although not too close to the bank. Continue walking for approximately 5 minutes to reach Hogwild.
