Description

Very large expanse of rock about 100 feet in height.
Lots of high ball boulders scattered around.
Fairly secluded area of the parkway.

Getting There

Drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway to MP 16 and then look for a LEFT hand turn onto a gravel road 814.

After about 4/10 of a mile look for a parking area on the right near a driveway. It's basically just a mud parking area.

If no foliage on trees then you can see the cliffs from the road and parking area.

Head straight across road and you'll see a rough trail that'll take you to the base

(caution: trail to the rock verges LEFT off of the logging road....again..do not continue taking logging road or pass gate d/t private property)

The cliffs are actually within park boundaries.

@Kari Elizabeth, I frequent there a pretty good bit and it looks like that with the construction for the house being done. The property line was surveyed and the line is clearly established. From eye sight on the pink survey markings, the line doesn't cross the trail and is still on park property. Dec 4, 2017
It looks like the trail to get there now is private property. The were several signs posted at the trail that is to the left from where you park. Unless, someone knows of another way? Oct 24, 2017
