Very nice short hike. We did the Rocky Woods recording which is a loop. Not sure why this hike was created as an Out & Back - I would think most people would prefer a loop. We played on some mountain bike seesaws and watched a guy climb the rock wall (very cool). Weather was literally PERFECT. Got ice cream after. JEFB

Definitely in my top 3 favorite local hikes. The forests are well spaced and beautifully green, never shady. The woods are full of interesting glacially deposited rocks. College Rock itself is about 40 feet at the highest and is great for rock climbing, especially due to its close proximity to the trailhead. This makes for a great morning or afternoon hike, it you're looking for something longer you can check out some of the other trails in the area and loop back a different way. I recommend using your tracker because the trails do not have signs.
