I did a month long trip in CO over a decade ago and one of the days, I think around Mt Princeton or something, we hiked this massive talis field that seemed to stretch for miles upon miles.

Does anyone know of anything similar, obviously not with western elevation, in the south east?

I miss those threatening ankle breaking scrambles.

A trip to a big gravel pit should cure you of that.

You really like loose stuff?

I like the technical aspect...

Come to Pennsylvania. Note the cover pic of the guidebook for this trail is taken from the trail: http://www.hike-mst.org/guide.html

I took the picture above of Devils Marble Yard. These are large boulders that's a lot of fun to climb from the bottom to the top but it's only about 1/8 mile long. There's a person sitting on one of the rocks for scale. It's in Arnolds Valley near Glasgow Va.

Another one that I've hiked a few times and maybe more of what you're looking for is located at Sherando National Park near Waynesboro Va. Small hand sized rock mostly that go from the bottom all the way to the top of the ridge, about 100 to 200 yards wide with no trees. Great views of Wintergreen Mtn and the lakes below you. Picture below.

Fiery Gizzard Trail in Tennessee perhaps? It is part of the Cumberland Recreation Area and is near Tracy City.
