Stoddard Hill State Park is located off of Route 12 in Ledyard, CT. It is about 5 minutes from Mohegan Sun Casino. Park at the boat ramp and follow the trail across from the boat ramp, up stream, to the Stoddard graveyard. Just above the graveyard are the diamond hard cliff bands that make up the area. This area has some fantastically steep gneiss rock with super unique holds. Its also idyllically located on the Thames River which often cools the area down and offers a great western view. This area gets good afternoon sun. This is a small bouldering area with PERFECT rock. The rock is gneiss, but feels almost like quartzite.


Getting There

Park it the lot near the water and train tracks. Walk into the woods and following a faint path(north) until you come across the obvious talus field. Walk up into the boulders. Everything is at the top of the hill.

these problems are very interesting and cool but this page is in need of some better location description of each problem as we were not able to locate or be sure of most of the problems here other than full circle, hamachi, and boomerang
