BETA PHOTO: The Sudden Boulder at Catoctin Mountain Park looms...


The Sudden Boulder is a prominent boulder just along the Blue Ridge Summit Overlook trail. It stands sentinel at the end of a low gully that starts by the north end of the Charcoal Exhibit parking area, and features moderate and harder boulder routes for the intrepid climber.

Getting There 

From the Charcoal Exhibit parking area, follow the trail towards Thurmont Vista/Blue Ridge Summit. After a few hundred feet, the trail comes to a crossroads. Take the left fork of the trail towards the Blue Ridge Summit and follow for another few hundred feet. The Sudden Boulder will be on the left side of the trail and is quite noticeable.
