Routes in Chess Rock

Description

This is the long rock running north/south just to the southwest of the Chess & Checkers House in the park. It's located mid-park at 64th street. It makes a convenient stop on the way between Cat Rock and Rat Rock.

You can traverse the full length of the western side of the rock. I've also seen people do a hands-free walk up the southern-most portion of the west face. If you top out on a sunny day you'll have found yourself a nice spot to sit and get some sun.

Getting There

If coming from Rat Rock you can follow the paved foot path that runs east/west south of the softball fields. Follow the path eastward and go under the bridge. When you exit the tunnel make an immediate left turn and you should see the rock up to the right.

If coming from Cat Rock, follow the paved footpath just south of Cat Rock and head west. Just before getting to the tunnel turn to your right and you should see the rock.
