RODNEY I. on Schooleys Mountain Park Trail
Decent overlook spot especially to see foliage. Good 2hr hike with the kids
Different portions of this trail are very different. The section along the stream is quite rocky and involves some scrambles over rocks and fallen trees. It basically follows the white on the hill or the blue along the stream. The other half follows the yellow grand loop trail and the beeline trail. That portion is generally wider, less steep, and less rocky.
This park has a lot to offer for anybody. Has waterfalls, a lake, meadows with beautiful flowers, and an awesome view to top it off. The trails are kind of hard to follow but if you follow the colored marks on the trees then you will be fine. Don't take the highland cut if you want to see the view, follow the grand loop until you hit the sign for "overlook"
The views of the waterfall were awesome!!! There are a few picnic-worthy spots too. There were a lot of steep parts and several rocks to climb so it was definitely moderate. The trail was confusing at times but with some backtracking we figured it out.
