Nice trail that leads to a grouping of boulders known as Rock Town. Bouldering from easy to difficult. There are wild blueberries along the way.

Amazing day trip. You are supposed to have a Lands Pass to get in. Or a hunting license. If you have a small car, prepare for some serious potholes on the way in. The hike itself is easy. It's the rocks and side trails that are the real fun. we never made it to the end of the trail (excuse to go back) because of all the climbing, jumping, and plain old fun we where having on the rocks. Keep your app handy. If not careful, it is very easy to lose the main trail.

Used to be my favorite place to hike. Most of the best views are easy climbs. Over the last decade climbers have come in huge hordes and really laid waste to the place. Most large formations have a big pile of wrappers(both Cliff Bar & Swisher) and chalk. I regularly find graffiti all over the place.

I used to be able to CAMP here but now that is against the rules because people refuse to respect it.

Rock Town is one of the most beautiful natural areas in Georgia. If you're going to climb there... clean up after yourselves.

Tons of good moderates. Best boulders in the area by far.

I love this place! It takes you back in time with the wonder of just why these huge boulders are in the middle of nowhere! Real Ancient Aliens feeling! The trail is moderate and the rocks are pretty easy to climb up on. Even plenty of places to get under when the rain catches you out!

Great location for bouldering! There's also an awesome cave known as Petty Johns cave which is awesome to explore.

Nice, easy hike for the family on a beautiful spring day--azaleas and wildflowers all along the trail, along with amazing rock formations that were easy to get to.

This hike is good when you have time to explore and climb. It's only a (scenic) one mile to amazing rock formations so not strenuous at all unless you climb and explore. You'll want to take lots of pictures.

Definitely a one-of-a-kind destination. Another great day trip destination. From walking around between the rocks, to bouldering, to climbing; there is no shortage of activities here. The trail is really pretty as well.
