Description

Two good sized boulders with excellent rock quality offer five or so problems.

The boulders are scattered throughout a hardwood forest, making for well lit winter climbing and beautifully speckled lighting in the summer. The conditions are consistent with everywhere else in CT, so bring some bug spray and a lot of water in the summer.

Getting There

There's a parking space on Book Hill Woods Road in Essex CT (not to be confused with book hill road) and a very small parking lot off of Dennison Rd. in Essex.

From the Book Hill entrance:
Enter the preserve and take an immediate left onto the blue blazed trail. Walk 5-10 minutes parallel to a small stream until you reach the green trail on your right. Walk over the bridge and another couple hundred feet uphill before coming to the book hill boulders...All two of them

From the Dennison Rd. entrance:
Follow the single blue blaze trail that parallels the neighbor's line of real and fake trees. so classy. Walk for about five minutes before you take a left onto the green trail. Cross a bridge and walk uphill for 30 seconds and you're there.

There's another large boulder on the double blue trail about 500 yards from the dennison rd entrance. Amazing rock quality and definitely some interesting lines. Dec 2, 2011
