Description 

There are a few different areas to climb in the park. Rock predominantly Schist with layers of amphibolite and gniess and part of the Collinsville Formation. The rock is gray and silvery with medium to coarse grains and dark, fine to medium grained amphiholite and hornblende gniess.

Blue Trail section is just that: up the blue trail. There is a cliff, about 40 ft. across and 50 ft tall. Blue trail cliff is mostly sunny as it goes above the tree line a little bit. It has really interesting grooves inlaid into it which makes for tiny sharp crimps galore. It's also positive to an almost imperceptible degree so it's not hard climbing if you just stay balanced forward. There is a swampy pool twenty some feet from the base of the cliff so watch out for skeeters!

To the climber's left of the cliff there are a few boulders with very difficult routes on them.

Old Fish House Rd section just follow the rd until you happen across the rocks on the left. There is very hard bouldering and an interesting cliff about 60 ft. tall, though it is broken up. This section is mostly shaded bc of heavy tree growth all around.
