Located in LaFayette, GA close to the Tennessee border, Rocktown is one of the best bouldering areas in the southeast and is known for its amazing sandstone with bomber slopers, crimps, huecos, rails and intense top-outs. Rocktown is relatively uncrowded, depending on the season. It's also a relatively new location with ongoing development and some undocumented lines.
Human and pet waste is increasingly becoming a problem at Rocktown. There are no bathrooms on site, so be prepared to pick up after yourself and your pets. Camping is not permitted in the parking area at this time, but you can easily camp nearby (3 minutes from the trailhead). Turn left after coming out of the trailhead road and make a sharp right shortly after to find the camping area. A lands use permit is technically required to climb/use/camp Georgia state lands (either that or a fishing/hunting license).
-Take I-75 North
-Take exit 133 for HWY 136 (Resacca/LaFayette)
-Follow HWY 136 to La Fayette (25 miles)
-Once in La Fayette, go left then right to HWY 193 North
-After 2.7 miles you will see Uncle Jed's Store, make a left on Chamberlain Road.
-Travel 3.3 miles then take a right on Rocky Ln. and Crockford-Pigeon Wildlife Area.
-Follow the road (which will turn into a dirt road) up the mountain through the switchbacks for about 5 miles.
-At the obvious fork, take a right.
-Drive another 1.3 miles and take a left on Rocktown Rd.
-Park at the end of the road
-Drive South on HWY 27
-After you pass La Fayette's Wal-Mart go straight to 27 BUS.
-Drive into La Fayette and take a right on HWY 193 North.
-Follow Directions from Atlanta once on HWY 193 North.
The approach is a real easy trail but is kind of long (about 5-10 minutes).
