Rocky Woods has a few boulder problems located on the Rocky Woods and Fork Factory Brook properties in Medfield, owned by the Trustees of Reservations. There is nothing exceptional here, but it is worth checking out if you are hiking or biking on the reservations. There is a possibility of more boulders/top-roping in the area.

Getting There 

The parking lot is located on Hartford Street in Medield, MA. Cross the road to enter the Fork Factory Brook property. The approach isn't bad, it is on well-maintained trails.

From the parking lot, cross the street, and follow the orange (dot) trail for about 10 minutes. Take a sharp right up a ridge (still orange trail, I believe) and continue up a steep hill. The Orange Fork Boulder is located on top, and there are others in the area to explore.

Nice looking boulder, are there more in the area? Any potential for hard lines?
