This is one of those places I knew about for a long time but never took the time to get to it. After a failed attempt to reach the summit with my telemark skis a long time ago, I had given up on this place.
Until today that is. We set off from the metal gate and turned to the right and cross a very new looking bridge. after the bridge we turned to the left and followed the stream on a wide dirt road. after some ascension and who my gps was pointing to the right, I saw some flagging tape. We followed it through some beautiful hardwood forest and past some very good size boulders. after only a few minutes and some good ascent, we made it to the big rock outcrop called Moses Mountain. On the front and side, there is enough rock face for some bouldering or climbing with minimal moss growth. To come back I went through the woods trying to find another rock outcrop but I missed it and will have to return to check it out
Highway 14. turn on at N44.88744 W64.21207. Park at the gate. The outcrop is at; N44.88843 W64.22574.

UpsideInteresting landmarks along the way for fun photography, not too challenging but enough of an incline to make you feel you accomplished a good climb, big view at the top. DownsideNone. Comment Not too long of a hike with a good incline. Both times we almost missed the path off the road to the right. It may be listed as easy, however, for a first time hiker and we had one, it was a bit of a challenge. Enjoyed the photo ops along the way with the huge boulder. I did this in the fall and winter. Will make sure I have grips for my boots for winter - the dusting of snow we had mixed with leaves with some water made for a slippery walk. In the fall wee continued up the road to the dam.
