Description

Hop on the Hog Rock Vista Trail to experience a steep, leafy climb that rewards its patrons with fantastic views from the stony summit of Hog Rock. Be sure to visit this trail in the autumn to see the surrounding area erupt in fiery fall color.

On the ascent, be sure to watch your footing, as often the trail can be covered in wet leaves and become quite slippery.

Flora & Fauna

Oak, hickory, and tulip poplar command the canopy in this area.
