Trail entrances for North Mountain

Description 

North Mountain is an area that receives lesser traffic when compared to the more prominent sections of Haycock. The concentration of boulders is a bit more infrequent and sporadic on this side of the mountain. Still, this does not detract from the possibility of great diabase boulder problems.

Along with climbing some great established lines on this side of the mountain, there is also opportunities to find your own boulder problems out there in the talus.

Getting There 

A U-shaped trail services this side of the mountain. It has one established parking lot that is roughly 0.3 miles north on Stony Garden Rd past the intersection of Stony Garden and Potter Lane.

The trail starts in the parking lot and loops out into the woods before returning back and coming out at the intersection of Stoney Garden and Potter Lane. The roughy 1.1 mile trail is somewhat easy to follow for a good majority of it. It could use some maintenance in the form of cairn building and down tree removal.

If youre starting at the parking lot, follow the trail until it comes across a big clearing of small boulders on the left side of the trail. From here, the trail heads slightly uphill and trends leftward as it starts its arch. Once past the boulder field, there is quite a bit of talus to explore. To find the main area (or area of largest concentration with some good established lines) follow the trail until it bends really sharply to the left. Continue until you can see several large boulders off in the talus on the right. Break right off the trail and venture inward.

If this is your first time to this side of the mountain, its highly recommended to purchase the Haycock Guidebook by Char and use the descriptions, GPS coordinates, and well written guides on how to find the established lines. Its very easy to get lost on this side.
