Description Suggest change

This has really good if somewhat spread out bouldering. This is town property/forest and can be frequented by biker and hikers, too. There are about 15 boulders and 75? problems, V0-V10.

Getting There Suggest change

Exit Route 495 at Route 85 south in Milford/Hopkinton (~45' west of Boston). On your right is a gas station and Wendy's. Park BEHIND these at a closed road. Walk up the closed road and left through an overgrown area (still an ok trail) for about 10 minutes. The first boulder is on your right. Keep going another 5 minutes and more boulders appear on both sides. More to come.

Per ??: Update on directions: Park behind Wendy's at the closed road and walk down the closed road. Take the first left to cut over to the new bike path. The first road on your right takes you down to the Atomic area. Pass that boulder and on the hillside are more boulders. If you pass the Atomic pullout, the next trail on your right brings you out into the Shadow Brook Quarry area. This is where Full Metal Jacket, Little Devil, The Roofs, etc are.

Per Coz Teplitz: For a 1st timer, once you turn left onto the new bike path, the first trail on the right does lead to Atomic. The other trail mentioned (the "main road" listed in some problem descriptions) is not the next trail on the right, but is the big dirt road with the metal gate across it. There are other, smaller trails between the two that will get you turned around.
