About Bradbury State Park:

One of Maine's premier bouldering areas! The beautiful granite boulders are big, rough and sharp. Located well off-trail and in a wonderful stand of open woods, bouldering here can feel almost magical. Some classics: Twisted V5/6, The Loaf V9, Love Life V4, many other V4-7s.
Nearest town or city: Pownal
Directions: Take 95 into Freeport. Get off at Old Exit 19 (not sure what the new exit number is but I think it's the Desert Road exit). If you're coming from the south take a left off the exit and if you're coming from the north take a right off the exit. You're going to take your first right (Hunter Road) and follow it maybe 5 miles to where it endsat Hodsdon Road. Turn right and follow Hodsdon a mile to where it ends at Elmwood Road. Turn left on Elmwood and go a short distance to Route 9. Turn right on Route 9 and go a mile or so and you should see the State Park on your left. Park then take the South Ridge trail for about 0.5 a mile up hill (you will know if you are on the right trail if you walk up three log stair cases). The trail will take a sharp right. When it does there will be a slab cliff about 20 feet high on the right side of the trail. Turn so that your back is to the slab -here is where you can get lost- walk straight down the rocky slope into the woods (on the map provided by the ranger there is a binoculars symbolizing a lookout point here). The boulders will appear after about a five minutes walk deep into the woods.
