From US-7 in Wallingford, follow VT-140 east. Turn south onto Sugar Hill Road (2.3 miles), then turn right onto White Rocks Picnic Road (USFS Road 52) (2.4 miles), and continue to the picnic area and parking (3.0 miles). The trailhead is located a short ways back west on the south side of the road.


From the west side of the parking area follow the blue-blazed trail. The trail switchbacks to a saddle, then ascends to the summit at the top of the knoll, before descending to a woods road. Turn left and follow the road across several brooks. The trail then follows the brook upstream to its source in the Ice Beds at the base of an old rock slide.

Other Information

The White Rocks Cliffs are made of Cheshire quartzite exposed by glacial action in the last Ice Age, about 12,000 years ago.
