A cluster of five boulders off Canochet rd. on the Blue Pond side. There are a few smaller ones beside the trail on the way in and scattered further afield.

Getting There 

Park at a gated pull-off just past Ashville Pond, on the right. There is not much space. If you have a few cars you might want to leave them back at the pond and walk up the road. Walk down the old dirt road and look for boulders on left after a few minutes. The top of the Walk the Line boulder will be visible through the rhododendrons, just over the crest of a little hill, about a hundred feet in (the climbing is on the back side). If you are looking directly up towards the boulder, you will know you are there if you look to your left and see a smaller boulder close to the trail with a rock slab leaning against it. There may be a small cairn just into the woods and a faint trail.

To get to the Gilman Boulder, park a little further south on the road, where Asheville Pond abuts it. Cross the road and walk into the woods (east) a minute and you will see it
