Awesome area off the housatonic range trail north of new milford. High quality gneiss boulders in an awesome setting with subtle difficult lines. Feels similar to boulder natural area of pawtuckaway.

Getting There 

You can either approach from the north off of church rd near gaylordsville cemetery or from the south off squash hollow Rd the blue trail crosses both.
