Cross Country Trail Boulders

Virginia > DC & Northern VA Region

Description

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

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

[Hide Comment] Thanks for adding these! Access is good to go here? Looks like some cool blocks with room for a few more problems as well? Keep adding more photos and info as you get it! Nov 24, 2013
[Hide Comment] I'm pretty sure access is good here. The stream-way and buffer is owned by Fairfax Country Parks. I also think there's some more potential boulders other side of the stream. I didn't have time to check them out. Nov 24, 2013

[Hide Comment] Hopefully I will be able to come climb some of these boulders in December. Thanks for the info! Nov 24, 2013
[Hide Comment] I found easy access here

Unfortunately, I could only access 4 of the posted problems, as the creek was flooded and impassable. Apr 8, 2016
[Hide Comment] Cool little area, very easy approach. Boulders are scattered right next to the path. Oct 18, 2018
