Description

The Pleasant Valley area is actually located in Brookfield, NH. The area is mostly a winter time destination due to the high volume of poison ivy. In the winter the entire area can be explored, but in summer months I stick to the right end (less ivy). The area offers some great ice climbs as well as rock routes.

Getting There

There is not a trail to the crag. Take Pleasant Valley Valley Road next to Kingswood Regional High School in Wolfeboro. Follow it into Brookfield and park at the dirt turnaround at the end of the road. Walk left past a gate and continue right across a field. Keep going into the woods and cross over many logging roads. Eventually you will drop down into a valley where rock can be seen. Walk around and find the cliff.

The area could also be accessed from Route 109 in Brookfield. The hillside with the crags can be seen from Fletcher Farm.

The place is hard to find, but it should take about 20 minutes once you know the way.

An interesting side note on this area. There's an enormous hemlock tree in the approach gully that has been recognized by the state as the largest known of its species in the state. My buddy Steve Arsenault, big tree lover extrodinaire, did all of the leg work in contacting the right people and getting the tree the recognition it deserves. (Note: this is private land. Act accordingly) Sep 24, 2014
Another description of the approach if people are still confused... From the parking area. Walk left past a gate and cut diagonally right across the field to a logging road at its corner, follow this road until you reach another field, continue straight along the edge of this field and take a sharp left on a second well defined logging road. Follow this road for a few hundred feet until you reach a partially overgrown logging road on the right, follow this and a trail of pink flagging into the approach drainage with the old growth forest and the massive hemlock (wild). Continue descending towards the pond and the cliff is on your right. Nov 21, 2017

This is an unbelievable place. Its hard to believe that this is in Brookfeild NH. This place belongs up north. Feb 9, 2014
I've referred to this place as the "Brookfield triangle". I tried approaching once in the dark with a gps unit and spent over two hours walking around. Hahaha Dec 15, 2013

Should be the state motto- " thrash through woods, cross logging roads, twist ankle, etc.." Mar 4, 2013

" Keep going into the woods and cross over many logging roads. "

Yeah, the whole area is riddled with logging roads. This is like saying, "to find the needle in the haystack, cross over many pieces of hay." Mar 3, 2013

Well the best way to get to this area is to go with someone who has been there. Do not go left or you're in for a 2 and a half hour hike. It took two phone calls and pure determination to find this one. Walk more straight across the field trending a little right and you will come across a wide logging road follow this about 500 yards then bushwack left and you still might miss it. Mar 2, 2013
