Getting weather forecast...
DescriptionSeveral large sandstone boulders nestled into a forested slope. The boulders are about 10 minutes from the trail and, as of winter 2013, have seen very little traffic (no chalk marks).
I found out about these boulders online from someone named Chris on vimeo, and have since climbed there.
NOTE: This is a State Forest and is therefore open to hunting in season. I have seen hunters and heard gunshots while I have been there. Be aware and wear your orange hipster hat in season.
Getting ThereFrom Louisville:
-Drive 18 miles south on I-65
-Take Exit 112, go Right at end of Ramp, go .6 miles.
-Turn Left on 61/Preston Hwy, go 3.8 miles
-Turn Left on 733/Wilson Creek Rd, cross over 65, and watch for a gravel pulloff to a small gravel parking lot on your left after .3 miles.
-Park in the parking lot (room for about 6 cars).
-Only one trail (Blue Trail) departs from the parking lot. Take it for ~20 minutes, until you run into a broad, grassy trail. This is the yellow trail. Turn Right on this trail and follow it for about 2 minutes, until a broad grassy trail splits off left. In between the trail ahead and the trail to the left, there is a creek bed going downhill. Follow it down for about 7 minutes. You will be able to see the boulders on the left bank.
