About The Grotto:

A generally north facing crag found at the north end of the park immediately adjacent to the river. The crag (if one is facing generally south looking at the crag from its base) splits into a left and right side, separated by a narrow chimney/grotto with a cave at the back. The left side is capped by a two meter roof.
Approach: From the parking lot reader board take the trail that trends northward as if headed to the north end of "Post Wall." After a few minutes on the trail there will be a branch trail to the right which takes one down to the river. The lower portion of the trail adjacent to the river has a chain link fence to keep casual hikers from falling into the river. At the base of the trail is the base of the crag.
Approach Time: 5-10 minutes from the parking lot.
