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.

Exceptionally well marked and well maintained. I was hoping for fall color but not there yet. It’s a loop in the old growth forest. No other destination. No view. Got a bit monotonous. But quiet and beautiful. The trees are amazing.

Very beautiful trail. I’m recovering from surgery and need easy trails. This one was perfect. The scenery of towering Douglas Firs and cedars was above par. Cleanest park bathroom I’ve ever seen. Lots of photo ops.

Nice, enjoyable walk for all skill levels. Definitely quite easy, with no major hills. We saw families out with young kids and dogs, so suitable for everyone! Great forest views, not much wildlife (saw a few birds and heard a woodpecker).

I took a 4 yr old and a 6 yr old with down syndrome, they enjoyed the huckleberries, native plants and the streams for jumping. Awesome first hike for these boys!

Enjoyed the quiet, secluded trail through Rockport State Park today. Well maintained, bathrooms at trailhead, lots of signs and maps to point you in the right direction. Discovery Pass needed. Several little streams/brooks to enjoy. I clocked 3.0 miles from start to finish

Great easy hike to start the season. Late May and the trail was empty! Wild flowers were spectacular.

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.
