Access Issue: Grand Lakes Reserve Access Details

Description

This area is free to visit and is a little but confusing to find. There are many sub sections of the Indian River Lakes Conservancy, some of which being "Lake of the Woods", " Butterfield Lake", among many other lakes and trails. This is a beautiful and pretty remote area not often visited, although it is very close to the town of Redwood. The rock type is mainly granite. In general the cliffs are staggered along a large area, almost all of which has been unclimbed thus far and most of the land is in need of serious recon before any climbing could be done. As well, before any sort of development can or should be done a discussion should be had with the IRLC about access and regulations. Other than that, this is mainly a place for more adventurous toproping and trad climbing. Most of the potential routes have never seen a climber, and the place is truly untapped potential. With that being said, if you do visit, please be respectful of the area as this place has no sets of rules and regulations for climbing yet. Please follow Carry in Carry out practice.

Getting There

As the area is somewhat spread and most is unclimbed, the approach can vary based on what you want to try out. Drive to Cottage Hill Road and find Burns road. Take Burns Road to either of the Grand Lakes Reserve Parking lots(There are two, both of which are on opposite sides of the trail). Park in either lot and take the North Ridge Trail for about a mile, in which you will come to a huge overlook with pretty massive cliffs below. This area is undeveloped and unclimbed, so tread with caution. Not sure if there is bottom cliff access on a trail, but rappelling is an option. From there it is free reign on untouched rock! There are also many smaller cliffs along the trail that also have some potential, as well as bouldering. Again please respect the area as it is new and undeveloped, and a conversation with the IRLC about access has not happened yet.
