Description

Right next to the remnants of Flight 349 is a small crag with some highball bouldering options.

Do not wander far from trail or plane site/rocks.

I'd recommend avoiding this area during hunting season, as it is not within park boundaries.

stay on marked trail once leave Mint Springs Boundary. Acceptable to hike to plane wreckage as long as remain close to well worn trail. Details

Getting There

Head up to powerline area and follow the fairly well marked trail (a little better worn than a deer trail). Some locals keep the trail fairly well marked with orange surveying tape.

It's about a 2 hour hike up to plane wreckage and the small crag is right next to wreckage.
