Description 

The Turkey Hill boulder is located in a beautiful hardwood forest near the top of a ridge, meaning there is usually good shade and a nice breeze. One of the best and biggest boulders along the trail, the Turkey Hill Boulder has a mix of moderate and challenging problems, with the potential for some really hard problems directly up the central, overhanging face. There is also the possibility of establishing some slab routes around the corner of the boulder, though you would have to clean off a fair amount of moss/lichen.

Getting There 

From the parking area on Boston Hollow Road, cross the road and follow the blue-blazed Nipmuck Trail east for a short ways before it starts heading south. After about 0.75 miles, you should reach the top of Turkey Hill. Continue south and downhill for another ~0.1 miles until you reach an unpaved forest road. You should see the large boulder about 50 feet to your left.
