Routes in Lake Raleigh Boulders

Description

This area contains three boulders next to Walnut Creek feeding into Lake Raleigh. This area is in no way a destination, but it can be fun if you are in the Raleigh area and need your fix of real rock.

I am not sure who the owner of this area is. However I have seen hikers and runners here and it is along a stream so I don't think there is any access issues. Just be respectful, minimize you impact and don't bring undue attention to yourself while climbing here.

There is one large boulder and two smaller boulders. I am sure people have climbed here before, but I don't think the area is substantial enough to have any real climbing history. Feel free to add anything you know about the past climbing here.

Getting There

Find a parking spot near the cul de sac at the end of Broadwell Drive where you will not get towed. From here get on the paved green-way path and head right towards Avent Ferry Road. Walk down the green-way for a few hundred feet. Before you get to the in the green-way find a path that leads into the woods on your left. This path should lead you to a fallen tree across Walnut Creek. Walk across the tree and you will be at the boulders.

The tree across the creek is gone unfortunately, so the approach has changed. Go a little further down the greenway until you get to the last concrete sewer thing before Avent Ferry and turn left into the creek. You can make your way across the creek easily when the water is low, or across some low fallen logs when it's higher. Tend left and up a faint trail onto a hill, then make a left onto another faint trail that runs along the top of the hill. This will take you to the boulders. Jan 14, 2017
