Description

A field of huge boulders created by glacier movements. Unforgettable sizes of boulders with views of the valley below. Go into the boulder field and explore -- extensive scrambling is required to explore the boulders. Bring a lunch with you and picnic under the shade of a boulder canopy. The field is a unique geological gem in a National Forest in Virginia.

Short Hike: Park at the Devil's Marbleyard trailhead and hike up the Belfast Trail. The trail is pretty rocky and not well-marked, but it is well-kept. Watch your footing. You'll be scrambling once you get to Devil's Marbleyard if you choose to go out on the rocks.

My FAVORITE hike so far. We could have climbed higher, but I wasn't fully prepared for the rock quarry.
