About Casparis:

Once a popular destination for top roped climbing. This area has seen a surge in popularity due to discovered boulders on State game lands. (2007) seemingly endless boulders are scattered all over and are currently being developed.
Nearest town or city: Connellsville
Directions: The easiest is to follow South Connellsville's Pittsburgh Street to the end, turn left onto McCormick Avenue, and follow this to the point where it curves to the right, which is Casparis Road. follow this rough road up the steep hill and onto the flat. Continue out flat until you come to a similar road to the right. take this right, forge the small stream and continue to the top of the hill. The parking area is on the right at the top of the hill. The trail starts at the parking area (for those familiar its the same parking area as for Opperman's Cave). The trail to the cave is on the left (rather worn and narrow) The bouldering trail is the wider newly cut trail that goes straight into the woods (sorta looks like a cart path and is wide enough for crash pads). Follow the wide open trail apprx. 100yrds to an intersection with an ATV trail, turn left onto ATV trail. Follow up steep hill 100 yrds to the top. Continue straight on the flat to the small open area 150 yrds. At this point the ATV trail cuts down over the hill to the right (do NOT continue on the ATV trail). In this open area go to the back left corner and find the continuation of the "new trail" cut into the woods. follow this a short distance to the Old growth forest and a Y in the trail. To the left is the Light Side, to the right is the Dark Side. These trails will lead you to the established boulders. (Total approach time apprx 10min.)
