Description 

Home to many lost arrows recklessly slung by locals from the cliff tops. Up the hill just before the Machine Gun Boulder

Walk forward and continue another 20 feet up to a finish with a great view. ...[more]   Browse More Classics in VA

It would be cool if you could add some pictures of this area.

This is a local's area with potential access issues if more folks started parking in the vicinity (the whole place could get shut down). Once the parking situation is handled, and the trash and graffiti is further cleaned up (it's come a long way since the place started getting developed), photos will be posted. Right now it would be cool, but not smart, to add pictures of this area.
