When people think of Hawk's Nest bouldering, they think of this area. Marked by a relatively open landscape compared to the rest of the New, and by the Dam standing guard in the distance. This area is one of three Hawk's Nest areas.

Getting There 

From the Cotton Top parking lot, walk down the gated road heading away from the main route 16 for a little over half a mile. You'll see a sign on the trail for Hawk's Nest Dam. The boulders and the open rock are hard to miss.
