Description Suggest change

The Snake Hill Wildlife Management Area contains some of the region's lesser explored sandstone climbing. It includes numerous sport/trad routes in addition to some established bouldering. Snake Hill has arguably the finest bouldering in the region, and quite possibly has more than the well established Cooper's Rock on the other side of the canyon. 

Getting There Suggest change

The Wildlife Management Area can be accessed from a few marked gravel lots that will be on the left side of Snake Hill Rd coming from Tyrone Rd.
