There are a couple places. In town you have the park at Ashlan and Minnewawa and a small place out back at Hobbytown "don't know if its still there". For a little bit of a drive you can go to Millerton Lake or there is a place called Rocky Point which i hear is pretty good, there is a thread on Rocky Point a few places down for directions. Have Fun

I drive by that fountain every day thinking it'd be a great place to crawl. Not really surprised to hear it's been done. Did anyone give you any trouble for being there?

It was cool - for being mostly Large rocks, there is a few doable lines up either side and w/some help (stacking) you could make a good run up + down it.
Noone was around - they're out of business + luckily no FPD stopped by either!

I've lived in Clovis my entire life and the police do a great job at keeping it nice, that's why I still live here. I have been pulled over my fair share of times (speeding). They've never hassled me though.

I'm sure this is what the story was about.

Anyway, I need to stop by there and check out the mini mountain as soon as my rig is together.

I lived in Clovis up until last year, all I ever got pulled over for was stupid stuff like tint and blue turn signals. Now I work with a couple of them on a spuratic basis and most of them are cool when your not breaking the law.

I'm watching the news and the "owner" of The Auto Gallery has been issued an arrest warrant for multiple charges: ripping of a credit card company and numerous customers for over $500,000! lol. His lawyer said that the guy will comply and turn himself in...

I'd say if the cops don't stop you from crawling on those rocks, the owner surely won't either!
