Located in Tuscaloosa and nearby to the University of Alabama, the boulders at Hurricane Creek Park are easily accessible and a compelling spot to clench your outdoor climbing fix.

Hurricane Creek Park in Tuscaloosa, Alabama hosts a field of climbable boulders within it's forest. From the parking lot, follow the trail that stems from the cul-de-sac for approximately 1/10 mile. You will encounter the first cluster of boulders on your right. There are several beginner routes (~v0) with deep jugs and large pockets as well as a more difficult crack route (~v1-2) on the large center boulder. The boulders continue on the right side of the trail for another 1/4 mile. The rocks are not well-documented so you may need to get creative constructing routes, however, there are plenty of rocks of varying heights and difficulties to climb.

Beware of broken glass. As of publishing this article, there are a few areas littered with broken glass. Be careful to check your surroundings before setting up and do not walk barefoot. Also, there is minimal upkeep on the boulders at Hurricane Creek Park so it may be necessary to clean off the rocks before climbing.
