Staunton Rocks is the first established climbing area visitors come to after leaving the trailhead. The area is 2.1 miles from the trailhead and is accessed via a good trail, with little elevation gain. Formations include: Meadow Dome, The Dungeon, Marmot Tower, The Ranch Hand, Park View Dome, and The Back 40.
From the trailhead off of Upper Elk Creek Rd., hike or bike the Staunton Ranch trail for just under two miles until you come to the Climber Access trail on the right hand side of the trail. The trail at this point is a service road, and the Climber Access trail is an old two track. Follow the Climber Access Trail two-tenths of a mile to the base of the Meadow Dome. From here, the trail leads in various directions to access the different formations that make up Staunton Rocks.

Can't wait to climb there, having grown up just down the road in Indian Hills. Is there somewhere I can find more info until it opens?

Very nice state park and great work being done in here. We recently visited for the first time and only explored a portion of the area, but we saw lots of great routes and lots of potential. Trails are in good shape in most areas. Be aware it is over 2 miles for the approach with lots of bike, kid, and doggy dodging :) Thanks to all who did and continue to develop this area - well done.
