Description 

The Lower Ledges are smaller and shorter than the other ledges. The climbs are more vertical and are about 20-30 ft. tall.

Getting There 

From the Appalachian Trail junction at River Rd., hike uphill a minute or two until you see a trail map box on a tree (see picture). About 35 feet after the box, turn left off the A.T. onto a smaller side trail. Two more minutes brings you to the crag.
