A very popular crag, it will not be uncommon to wait in line for a route on a busy day. A great variety (easy, moderate, difficult) of routes at this crag, plus a good view of the road from the top.

DIRECTIONS: From Slade, drive 6 miles South on KY11. Park in a gravel lot on the right. You will find the trail across the street heading up a hill. The approach is short and moderate.

Approach: Park in the gravel parking lot off the highway. The trailhead is across the road. There's a footbridge about 15 yards down the trail, followed by a fork. Going right will take you to Roadside Crag. It is a 5-10 minute uphill walk from here.
Approach Time: 5
