Family Friendly A fun trail that is short enough for all members of the family. Plus, the kids can check out the fun hole in the rock and get some good pictures.

Description

The trail starts at the parking lot and works its way around the boulder until you come up into the backside. There is a large hole (giving this place its name) in the rock that is wide enough for several people to walk through at the same time.

Spend some time exploring the top of this place and take some pictures. For the capable and more experienced hiker, I'd recommend climbing to the top of the boulder, as there is an additional hole at the top that is fun to look through and get your picture taken from below.

Peeking through a hole at the top of Hole in the Rock. Must boulder/scramble to actually get to the top of this rock. Not for the inexperienced.
