Tohickon Creek flows through the 45-acre Ralph Stover State Park, making a scenic picnic area. The nearby High Rocks section of the park is a lovely overlook of the Tohickon Creek.

Great trail with great views.
But, a bit more challenging than the Easy rating it has here with a decent amount of elevation changes, rocks and roots.
Would be 5 stars if the trail wasn't so poorly marked. A ranger with a can of spray paint could make this a great hike!

This place is awesome! Views over the rocks most of the hike with a few minutes of beautiful forest that leads to Tohickon Creek, a perfect lunch spot. Pick a flat rock and listen to the trickle of the water. Then, went back up the same trail because of the views were so pretty. Parked in the smaller parking lot with the port-a-potty which was right next to the trailhead. It's truly picturesque park that's not to far out of the Philly area. If your close, go!

Nice 6 mile out and back from the Ralph Stover State Park parking area. We went a bit further than the mapped trail and found a fun creek access area about 3 miles into the hike. I recommend parking at the Tory Rd parking area (150 Tory Rd, Pipersville, PA 18947) and accessing High Rocks from there. You are missing nothing by cutting off the walk in along the road from the State Park Road trail head. If you choose to stay with the original trailhead, the trail access off of the paved road is about .5 miles or so up the road and is not marked. Look for the road spur sign and you/ll see the trail. The trail begins with a few yellow blazes, but that doesn't last beyond the first quarter mile, so be sure you have a map handy. That being said, the trails were fairly easy to follow.

Most of this trail is along the wooded path up top and has a couple drop in locations that allows access to the creek. The area is overgrown with poison ivy, so plan ahead and keep kids close. We had no problems with ticks. The views are outstanding and the creek isn't bad. You can make this hike as long as you want if you keep moving down the trail along the creek line. However, the further you go, the more overgrown the trail becomes. We were certainly by ourselves 3 miles into the trail. Most people turned around by mile 2. This is a scenic area that I found to be worth the drive. It isn't difficult by any means. Enjoy!

Took on High Rocks during a rappelling trip. Wonderful views and a very easy stroll through the woods. The area is heavily wooded, so you'll have lots of tree canopy coverage to protect you from the sun. I recommend adding Tohickon Creek to this trail so you can play down by the water.
