Two main walls and a third in the woods. This is a beautiful area other than the presence of the power lines. I enjoy this place as a warm-down as the climbing is not so much physically challenging.

Getting There 

From Ry's Stash continue on the trail. This should widen as you pass a large tower on your left.

Option 1: Continue up the road until you see an obvious trail cutting into the bush beneath the power lines. Follow this along the power lines until you see a tall rock down at the bottom of the hill.

Option 2: Continue past the trail into the brush for a minute or so until you reach a parking lot with a metal gate and brown CT parks sign. Cut right along a path and bushwack through mountain laurels. There's a 25' wall here in the woods, but continue towards the power lines to get to the other areas.
