Parking

Carver Climbing Club members are permitted to share part of the Stone Cliff Inn parking lot at certain times. When busy, the Stone Cliff Inn needs all of their parking spots to be available for customers. Protect this privilege by observing the following rules for parking:

The only on-site parking that climbers are allowed to use at the Stone Cliff Inn is the circular parking area in front of the climbing entrance. Once the circular parking area is full, park off-site.

If the main Stone Cliff Inn parking lot is at or near capacity please park off-site — regardless of the time or day — to allow their customers to park on-site.

No on-site parking on holidays. Be especially mindful of: Valentine’s Day, Easter Sunday, Mother’s Day, and Father’s Day.

Summer months: no on-site parking after 5pm, every day, June to September.

From October to May, climbers may park on-site all day (including after 5pm), Sunday through Thursday – except holidays. No on-site parking after 5pm on Fridays & Saturdays from October to May.

Some off-site parking is available at the intersection of Hattan and Gronlund Roads. There is a trail to the climbing areas that starts on Stone Cliff Lane.

Off-site parking is difficult to find during the summer months. On hot summer weekends there is a parking service across from the Baker Cabin church, for a cost of $5.

Warning: if you park on the county roads, all 4 tires must be inside the white lines, and please obey No Parking signs. There have been a lot of tickets issued and cars towed during the summer.

Parking is not allowed at Stone Cliff Inn for access to nearby recreational areas, including the Clackamas River.
