About The Oasis:

From the Junior Williamson Rest Area, drive south on KY 11 for about 9.0 miles (1.4 miles past Torrent Falls) to the town of Zachariah, just before the Lee County line. Turn right onto the winding KY 1036 and drive 2.0 miles. Just after a fenced-in oil drilling yard, you will see Big Bend Road. Continue past Big Bend Road for 0.1 miles to Sun Oil Company parking lot. On its right side, near the road, is a very steep gravel road. Drive 0.4 miles down the road (ignoring the turnoffs) to an obvious cliff on the right with a spacious pullout. An effortless approach if you have 4-wheel drive. You can probably make it back up the hill in a good car as long as it doesn't rain. The rock has excellent features for climbing, but there is a touch of choss. It can get very hot in the summer.
