A good beginner trail. Variety in difficulty and length depending on the paths you take. The overlooks are close to the parking lot for people that want a view without a long hike.

This is a great place to build your trail legs, but go slow at the beginning! I know from personal experience that a fall on these rocky trails will ruin your day.

Great local trails the are maintained regularly. The trails range in difficulty from novice to expert. I take my 5 year old here regularly and he can handle even the most challenging trails.

This park has many well marked trails. It was good hiking, I didn't like hiking under the huge power lines. The noise from them is certainly disturbing.

good little network of trails. you can mix and match to turn into as long as a hike as you like. well marked, easy to follow.
one side of the trails is all picnic and fitness trails, other side is more remote and wooded.

Nice trails. Some flat, some hilly. The only drawback is there is a mix of hunting and hiking on the mountain , and not all of the trails are well marked so it makes me a bit nervous hearing the gun shots. It is a well kept and beautiful spot though

Nice trails in this park, and none too hard. Parking lots are on the top of the ridge and many of the trails stay along the top; if you go downhill, just bear in mind that you'll be coming back up, but no more than a few hundred feet. I have hiked here many times since it is easily-accessible to me. I think of the park as sort of having 4 quadrants (NW, SW, NE, and SE) with the western side bisected by the main paved road and the eastern side bisected by a wide trail (probably an old dirt logging (?) road). There are good hikes throughout the park; recently one of my favorites is a loop in the SW quadrant that must be about 1.5 miles long. Rocky Ridge seems to be a popular spot for mountain biking; I usually see at least one or two riders on the trails when I'm out hiking.

This trail system us great for beginners as well as experienced riders. The trials loop around in away that at any time you're only a few minutes from the parking lot, which is nice to know in case of bike breakage or injuries from a wipe out. Keep in mind it's name is Rocky Ridge, there are plenty of rocks and tree roots to go over, around and thru.
