Description 

Dense woods and somewhat loose rock, but also a few interesting looking bouldering problems, and possibly more. Very private terrace with a few old apple trees.

Getting There 

Park at the gravel loop around the oak tree. hike down the trail just to the west, leading to The Witches Cauldron. Before you get there you will reach a point where a large tree has fallen across the path. Just before here a faint trail crosses the one you are on, it is marked with pink ribbon on trees. Follow this trail downhill, to the left. You'll reach the terrace with several old quarry faces after a ~10 minute walk
