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

You can drive up red bluff road and go park right above the cave if you aren’t up to hiking all the way around. You will be about 10 minutes from the cave. It is a beautiful sight to see and walk around

It is really neat to see Native American pictographs that are on the Cave ceiling. Most of the time we see history in museums. It is nice to see some history in nature too.

Cave is cool.

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.
