All of the rocks should be cleaned much more since moss, lichen, weeds, and little branches definitely block a bunch of potential lines.
This rock is decently well known among crunchy nature folk in Sharon. There are two very old ropes attached to the top of Devil's Rock. These ropes are hung down the giant slab. Random hikers climb up the slab while holding the ropes. This was a lot of fun as a 10 year old local, but ditching the ropes proves better.
The easiest way to access the trail is by parking at the end of Brook Road in Sharon, MA. Drive to the end of the cul de sac, park next to the woods, and walk up the street for a minute until you see a brown sign on a tree that says "MASSPOAG TRAIL." There will be a blue stone on the ground underneath that sign. You might feel like you are walking into someone's yard, but it is town property.
You'll be following blue signs/markers to get to Devil's Rock. The hike from the trailhead is only 5 minutes. From the street, follow the trail downhill for a minute, and turn right at the first fork in the trail. There's a sign at this junction, but both left and right are marked blue, so be sure to turn right. If you find yourself walking steeply uphill, you went the wrong way.
After turning right at the first junction, cross a wooden bridge over a beautiful brook, bear left, and you should see a sign that says "Devil's Rock." Follow the sign towards the rock, be sure to follow blue markers on trees for another couple minutes, and you'll arrive.
