Morpheus is an area that is fairly spread out but the first boulders you reach are not far from where you park luckily. Morpheus has satellite areas on both sides of the West Fork of Miller River. Areas on the North side are a bit of a hike and there is a lack of established trails. Areas on the south side are easy to get to and only involve a walk across a log that is elevated over the West Fork of the Miller River. Several other areas and large amounts of boulders exist heading southeast of the areas like Devil’s Club forest.
