Description

Emmaus Boulders is a small collection of good quality quartzite boulders in the South Mountain Preserve. A 15 minute approach following signs for the rock outcrop on well established trails will bring you to the bouldering area. There doesn't seem to be much information on this area, so the PA guidebook might provide the best overview of the area. While other PA bouldering areas exceed this area in terms of quality and quantity of boulders, if you live in the Lehigh Valley Emmaus Boulders is definitely worth checking out.

Getting There

From I78 take Exit 57 for Lehigh St and continue on Lehigh St heading towards Emmaus for approximately ½ mile. Turn Left onto 31st St and continue for about a ½ mile. Turn Right onto Emmaus Ave and continue for approximately ½ mile. Turn Left onto Alpine St and follow until the road ends, park at the small park parking lot.

Has anyone explored beyond the boulder outcropping at the top of the hill? I would venture to think that there might be several more boulders like this tucked along the ridge line. May 4, 2015
