If you want to clip bolts check out Locust Grove about 1 mile from The Narrows.
Please bring a garbage bag and help us keep this area clean. It is treated as a garbage dump by some of the locals.
You will be climbing above Will's Creek all day and it has great fishing, as well as, some sweet swimming holes!

Parking note. I have had no problem using on street parking in the area. The end of Columbia street has plenty of parking and is only about a 100 meter walk to the trail head. Don't park on red lines and avoid the immediate church area on Sundays. Say hi to the locals and tell them what you are up to. They will be interested and being friendly can only help our access.
Indy says it better than I can.
