Description Suggest change

Huge granite boulders, short walks, and sick lines are dotted throughout the woods at this great circuit area. Located within Mt. Anne Park, this area has so much potential along with many established problems. Note: Bring a brush for some of the boulders as many are over grown.

Getting There Suggest change

Take Route 128 north to exit 14. At the bottom of the ramp, stay right. About 100 feet down the road there will be a hairpin turn on the right onto New Way Lane (it comes up fast and is easy to miss). Drive slowly up the one lane road and park at the pull off and gate to the right at the end of the road. Follow the fire road to fork. Go left for 3-4 massive granite boulders, or right for a few scattered boulders in the woods on the right side of the trail. This link has the directions mapped out. The approach takes about 3 minutes, sick.
