The trail is now closed and a fairly new sign and gate with "NO PARKING. PRIVATE PROPERTY. NO TRESPASSING. NOT PUBLIC ACCESS TO BIG ROCK." posted on it. Call me a wuss, but I don't particularly wanna get shot trespassing on someone's land. Super bummed about this

We parked on the side of hwy 9 and took the path across the street. It was short, about 1 mile, decent incline. You kind of have to rock climb to get to the top, but nothing too difficult. It got the blood pumping. It was pretty, you can see almost 360*

Big Rock has 2 approaches. One a very gradual trail and the other shorter more inclined trail. Big Rock also has a couple short bolted routes for climbing. An easy hike for kids and people with bad backs.
