We enjoyed this hike! Not too strenuous but must be able to climb rocks and steps to enjoy the Rock House. Loved the doves nesting inside of the Rock House, although they gave us a scare flying at us...we didn't see them at first.

There are two paths on this hike. One is shorter and the other is slightly longer but both are not very hard. The rock house is amazing and has very amazing scenery.

We enjoyed going to Rock House. Its beautiful. Bring your camera and a flashlight. The rocks can be a little slippery. Not a place for older people.

There is a parking lot that is pretty big. It's not too far of a hike. Maybe 1/2 mile. Check out their website and it shows you a map and says 1/2 mi and 1/2 hr to hike it. I tried to include the website here but it... More
