Rock Run

Doe Run

A backcountry bouldering zone with an approach that might shy away some. Relatively flat hiking, just long. Easily access off the old Ellenton Mountain Grade Road. The quality of the rock is variable and due to the size of some of the boulders bringing a rope might be useful.

The Beta

Continue down the dirt road (off season) for 20 minutes (0.8 miles) passing the pipeline cut. Once past the pipe cut the road deteriorates into a primitive road. Continue for 12 minutes (745 yards) until you enter a grove of evergreens. Turn right (north) into the forest and find your way to the boulders in 5 minutes (330 yards). You should arrive at Tyson . You can follow the band of rock west for more climbing. To reach Darkside  head uphill from and pick up some game trails along the rim of the outcropping to get you there. GPS navigation to and from the boulders.
