Description Suggest change

Located in the shady a Pohick Creek drainage, a few gneiss, spray painted boulders that make for a couple problems. This isn't a great climbing destination, but if you have no-where better to go, it's something.

Getting There Suggest change

One way to get there is to park on a roundabout at the end of Wadebrook Terrace (maps goo.gl/vQw5dP), and walk down Cross Country Trail for half mile. It very easy, flat, and paved.

A shorter approach is to park by the Newington Glen sign on Lodge Court (https://goo.gl/maps/4M1Himd5VTxRb8qw9). There is a paved trail with one short but fairly steep hill. Less than 5 minutes walk and you'll join the Cross Country Trail at the Culvert Boulders.
