The bouldering in Forest Hill Park is located in and around Reedy Creek, South/uphill of the lake. The most upstream area is the Figurehead Wall and the most downstream is the Crow's Nest boulder.
This area is very popular for families to walk and ride around the park, so be courteous and respectful to folks on the trails and pack out whatever you bring in.

Forest Hill Park is open from sunrise to sunset. Please be respectful of the park rules.

Getting There 

Forest Hill Park is on the South side of the James River located off of 41st and 42nd Street between Riverside Drive and Forrest Hill Avenue. Parking for the boulders can be found 2 places:
1) Park at the Stone House on 41st St. From there, hike across the field and down the hill to meet up with the asphalt trail heading East toward the creek. Follow the mountain bike trail as it cuts off to the right. When the MTB trail cuts across the creek, head downstream on the slab and you will find the Figurehead Wall on the left.
2) Park in the Main parking lot on 42nd St. From there hike down to the lake on the dirt MTB trail or the paved road. When you get to the lake, head to the right until you reach the bridge over the creek. The bouldering is upstream starting with the Crow's Nest boulder.
