Seasonal Raptor Closures for access issues: please review


The forests around Kettle Pond offer granite blocks of various sizes, including the prize, the Gem Boulder. Access has not had any offical issues, but the park seems to be wary of climbers. Be on your best behavior.

Getting There 

Follow route 232 to Kettle Pond State Park, and use the day parking area just north of the park entrance for camping. Substantial parking available.
