Description

Bald knob has bouldering and roped climbing. These are the cliffs.

Getting There

Park at the picnic area where Highway 49 and the northern end of Mad River Road intersect. Walk a bit up 49 until you can see an old logging road across the street. Walk up this road until it becomes a trail. You'll see the main stream come in from the right. (The idea is to follow this stream as this stream will eventually lead you directly to the boulders.)

The trail crisscrosses a bunch of cross country ski trails, but keep following the main stream into the woods. After about a third of a mile, you'll end up on the Yellowjacket Ski Trail. Once on this trail, follow it for a couple hundred yards until the stream crosses under the trail at a wooden bridge (this would be the second bridge you've crossed). Once over the bridge, head left into the woods.

Once in the woods, follow a small climber's trail up the stream bed, and look for periodic cairns. As long as you follow the stream, you can't get lost. You will come to some average-looking boulders on the left after about 4/10ths of a mile. Keep heading up the stream bed for another few minutes and you'll see the Yellowjacket Boulder. Continue following the trail up hill above the YJ boulder. There will be a trail split a few minutes up from there, take the right fork. Walk another 5 minutes (past some large boulders right on the trail) when the trail levels out look for an open area. If you are headed to Cavern Cliff Area take a climbers trail to the left. To get to the slab lands continue up the trail you are on until you see the cliffs on your left.
