Description [Suggest Change]
Roughly a dozen climbable boulders of varying sizes are scattered throughout the Lower Fire Road area, although you'd never know it seeing as how they sit back in the woods. The rock quality ranges from the less-than-ideal Fraggle Rock to the great Voodoo Boulder, and chances are you'll have it all to yourself. The Voodoo Boulder sits atop a wash in the sun while the other boulders are more shaded. The largest boulder in the area, the Project Boulder, may yield some difficult climbs if it ever sees traffic, and one of the smallest boulders is straight out of Blair Woods. If you only get here once, climb the circuit starting at Fraggle Rock, moving to the Mudhoney Block, and ending on Voodoo.
Getting There [Suggest Change]
Hopefully you don't get lost, but these are really easy to find. When walking down the Fire Road from the Horse Farm, you'll cross a stream at the bottom of the hill, then after the final drop there will be a marsh on the left and a stone wall on the right with a large, low boulder sitting just beyond. Step over the stone wall and head around the back of that boulder. Fraggle Rock is up the hill directly behind it to the left of a small marsh/pond. Left of Fraggle Rock is the Mudhoney Block, and up the wash to the left is the Voodoo Boulder. From there, if you walk towards Round Pond you'll run into the Project Boulder, and walking downhill will drop you back on the Fire Road.
