More Info

Whiskey Springs is a well known rock climbing area on the Appalachian Trail. The boulders range in size and skill level. Safety equipment is needed. To approach, walk up the right side of the road and enter the woods at the white AT blazes. Follow the trail steeply up the ridge until you reach the first outcrops. The hike is almost exactly a 1/4 mile.
