Rock House Cave Trail leads to a large rock shelter used by native americans. It has Native American rock art, created over 500 years ago, if you can find it. The trail also has "turtle rocks" formations along the way Purple Blazes mark the trail

Great little trail for family hiking. Our girls enjoyed the walk, seeing the sights, turtle rocks, and cave drawings!

Did this Ranger guided hike and really enjoyed. They were able to point out cave drawings that I would not have noticed on my own. The "turtle rocks" in the glade area were also very cool. Would definitely do this one again.

Very short and easy trail.Nice rock formations starting with Turtle Rocks. Then to the Rock House cave and if you look closely you can see some of the native marking.

This is a pretty short hike, but it is worth it to see the cave art, and the turtle rocks. So beautiful out there.
