Blackrock is one of my favorites and it never gets old, no matter how many times you go! It's easy enough for all levels and it's a great hike any time of the year!
Great hiking experience for kids. Short trail to fantastic rock scrambling and fantastic views. My 5 year old explored for two hours and wanted to stay longer. 3 year old had a blast too, but had to be watched closely as there are some spots where little ones can get into trouble. Overall highly recommend and we will definitely return!
Short and easy hike to a spectacular rock summit with an amazing view. The trailhead is at MP 84.8 on the Skyline Drive. The nearest restroom is at the Dundo Picnic Grounds, MP 83.7. Blue blazes mark the trail. We were warned that rattlesnakes occasionally sun themselves on the rocks at the summit. We didn't see any snakes, but we did encounter a black bear who was using the trail.
This is a great spot. Short hike up to the rocks, and then just a great view of the surrounding area from atop the rocks.
So beautiful, and easy for the kids. my youngest (4) needed a little help climbing the rocks, but the boys (5, 9, 11) did it all without help. Highly recommend.
So beautiful but incredibly easy. If you're looking for a picnic with a view this is the place for you. If you're looking for a workout, look elsewhere or pair with another hike.
A little uphill but still easy. Not too hard on the knees or the ankles.
Probably the easiest trail in the park. A very short trail with incredible views.
quick and easy hike with some great views. trail is nice and smooth, well maintained
This trail is very easy and great for kids and people new to hiking. It is a short trail but worth the time. The views from the summit are beautiful and worth the trouble me.
great easy hike with amazing views. great for kids. they can climb on the rocks and it's not terrifying for parents to watch them do it. the views are worth the hike.
Great hike! Not to hard, perfect for the family! Great rock scramble with great views!
Fun rock scramble at the top for fantastic 360 degree views. Can be easy 1 mile hike with minimal elevation gain or more extended loop.
Absolutely beautiful... Easy hike and the view was amazing.
Super easy and super beautiful!
