Rockport State Park is a 670-acre park in an ancient forest. The old growth was never logged, and the entire ecosystem remains in place, creating a rare, natural forest with a canopy so dense that minimal sunlight penetrates to the ground. The park stands at the foot of Sauk Mountain, which has an elevation of 5,400 feet and a steep but climbable trail to the top.

This is a 3 mile hike that also had about 1 mile of ADA trails. There are a couple different interior routes you can take to make the trail longer than 3 miles. I took a group of 6 boys from our local Webelos Cub Scout Den. The old growth trees are beautiful. There is a stream and lots of interesting mosses, flowers and fauna.
