Fern Lake Trail/The Pool/Arch Rocks
This trail heading out to The Pool area has a smattering of boulders which may entice the errant boulderer starting about 3/4 of a mile down the trail. There are some highballs along here. There are even some toprope problems, too. There are some nice streamside boulders once the spring runoff ends. It's not clear that there are high end boulder problems.
Note, the Arch Rock backcountry site has been closed due to beetle kill tree fall potential.
There are nice smaller boulders if you wish to bring your little boulderers along.
From the Beaver Meadows entrance, head towards Moraine Park and its campground. Just before entering the campground, take a left down past the Cub Lake trailhead. Continue to the end of the road. The trailhead has limited parking, but there are small pullouts 0.2 & 0.4 miles back. There is a slightly larger parking area at the winter closure spot perhaps a mile back.
Note, a small, RMNP shuttle bus does service the area.
Weather station 8.4 miles from here

This line has probably been done previously, but an obvious starting jug broke off. Erin, 7, wanted to boulder and inspired an ascent by an infrequent boulderer. So, for now, we'll have a more interesting name than "Unknown" until you cough up the "real" name.There is a nice sidepull and undercling start that go to jugs on a vertical face....[more] Browse More Classics in CO
