Description

Hen's Nest is a prominent chunk of rock in a big bend in the Red River between Middle Small Wall and Sky Bridge.

You'll probably never see another soul while at this rock.

You can scramble to or from the summit on the west side of the rock.

Getting There

Park on the west side of the road about half a mile west of the Concrete Bridge (Eagle's Nest, Wall of Denial TH). Cross the river and hike straight up to the east face of the rock.
