Swillin' through a Head Net V4 ****
Tucked away in the forest below Crane Mountain, Boulderwoods is a relaxing destination worth a weekend visit. It's one of the larger boulder fields in the region and the boulders are concentrated. The landings and rock quality are generally good, but the area has only recently seen development, so the problems may still need some cleaning. The boulders often seem less featured than in other areas of the Adirondacks and many problems follow prominent arÍtes or seams on otherwise blank looking faces.
Boulderwoods is located on State Preserve land and there are no known access issues.
Due to its high elevation, snow tends to linger in the spring and blackflies can be absolutely vicious until mid-summer. The best conditions can be had in the fall.
