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.
Great for a regular hiker. Might not be good for beginners. Big boulders to climb,have to be careful coming back down.
TIP: Use hiking footgear.
Great hike! Found it to be moderately challenging in some spots, but overall was easily passable. Hiked out to Center Point Knob and stopped for a drink of water and a power bar, then headed back. Great views from the overlook. Definitely worth the time to do this trail!
A good after-work hike. It meets up with the AT and there is a partial view. Will want to follow AT for a bit to get more distance next time.
Loved the hike but definitely thought it was tough. Was surprised to see so many kids out there. I don't know if I'd bring kids (or dogs) along...I was so busy making sure I wouldn't trip over anything- would be hard to manage another person or an animal. It was really interesting, though and I loved the challenge!
I liked this trail a lot. A very good, well marked, moderate trail. Two good scenic points. The turn around is the mid point marker of the Appalachian Trail. Some very rocky areas that can make it a little challenging for short legs... Only for short distances.
Good quick hike. Rocky and slick if you shoes get wet. Take a few more steps past midway to see the monument and a hiker check in
Just took my 3 boys (ages 11, 8, 3) on this trail. They loved it!!! They all did great! I'm not positive how far we went but we walked an hour and a half and then turned back. Took an hour to get back.
