Great Trail. Well marked & used. Great rocks for climbing, repelling, and bouldering. Climbs the mountain to top about 500' gain, then heads out along the top of the mountain until it hits Center Point Knob. Joins the Appalachian Trail at Center Point Knob (about 1.5mi from trail head)
Love this place, both for hiking and for climbing/bouldering. It's officially listed as "moderate," but the trail is pretty steep in some areas, so definitely wear some decent hiking shoes. The top of the mountain offers an amazing view, but you'll need to climb several large boulders to get there. Be on the lookout for snakes during the summer months (they won't bother you; just don't step on them!).
Easy hike. With most of the leaves gone in the fall/winter you get a nice view on both sides while hiking the ridge to the outlook. Pretty neat climbing through the boulders. Outlook isn't the best in the area but still worth the hike.
Nice view and plenty challenging for a new hiker. I recommend it if you don't mind a steep ascent and winding around boulders.
This is a great Trail close to home. White Rocks Trail comes by it's name honestly!!! My 12 year old daughter says it needs more rock stacks!!
Did this trail on a Sunday afternoon. It was a bit cloudy and rained slightly but when it cleared up the trail was beautiful! The view is incredible and if you stand on the top rock you are actually taller than some trees! Very challenging climbing the rocks up but worth it. Will definitely be doing again!
Great hike! Definitely a bit tough, very scenic and very well marked! Love
Loved the rocks at the top. Perfect mix of difficulty and fun on the rest of the trail
Hiked yesterday with my wife, and it was absolutely gorgeous. The ascent to the top of the mountain is a little challenging for a big guy like me (and the descent is actually harder on account of bad knees and lots of rocks on the trail), but not too bad really.
Once you get to the top, the hike over to the white rocks clearing is really cool. At the clearing it's easy to boulder up to the top for a solid view.
We went on a Saturday evening and there were plenty of other people there, including some folks with kids, but mostly local college students.
