“The Rock Trail is a newer trail featuring six of the reservation's "Rock" features.”— Rob Cummings
Sections are very steep with one section being an actual rough-hewn rock staircase that climbs 150 vertical feet.
The rock features are as follows:
-Raven Rocks and Spy Rock are the two overlooks on the southeast section of the trail.
-Bear Rock petroglyph (google it!) is a verified carving at least 5,000 years old created by Native Americans. The carving is on a boulder and is in the shape of a bear and several other local animals.
-Indian Rock Shelter is a former native American campsite.
-Castle Rock is a rock formation which somewhat resembles a castle.
-Dancing Rock is a large flat rock that was the site of late night dancing by local families after a harvest moon in the late 1800's and early 1900's.
