Description

A quiet and humble local bouldering area near Princeton University. With some imagination (and a lot of desperation), there is much fun to be had here.

There's an official guidebook available for Witherspoon Woods bouldering - it's a sub-section within the Sourland Mountain GunksAapp guide, which can be found here: gunksapps.com/sourland_boul….

Getting There

The best way to get to the boulder field is from the Cherry Hill Road entrance. From Princeton University, go down Witherspoon St until you reach Cherry Hill Rd on the left. Go down until you reach the white sign for Witherspoon Woods on the left. Park in the gravel parking lot if you have a car and then continue down the yellow blazed path (go right at any forks - the trail is obvious) until you reach the boulders. It's a short drive or about a 45 minute walk from the university (~2 miles). The street view from this entrance is here.

You can also bushwhack in from opposite Bouvant Dr., although it's further if you're coming from the university. If you do, just walk straight into the woods until you begin to see talus. The coordinates for the entrance are 40.371293, -74.676661.
