About Humpback Rocks:

These huge rocks are not technically challenging but nonetheless are FUN bouldering! Lots and lots of rock at varying difficulty (but still mostly easy).
Nearest town or city: Afton
Directions: Take Blue ridge parkway south from Afton. Approx. 5 miles. Well-marked trail. 30-45 minute hike.
Latitude, Longitude: 37.96876, -78.89702
Access Issues: This place was great and a lot of fun. But beware of going after any precipitation. The trail turns to slush and the fact that it is fairly steep there are some really challenging parts. Also avoid it when there have been freezing temperatures. There was a sheet of ice 6 feet long blocking the whole trail. So as long as the weather is good, you will have a blast and get a good workout.
