Trails not marked and not shown on the app either. Unfortunate that the rock collapsed.

I think this is labeled wrong we followed the directions and ended up hiking Freetown state forest which was a nice hike through forest with not too many views, we did profile rock the next morning which is just down the road and a very short walk from the parking area to the rock... that being said the rock climb was cool and the views from the top were nice. Too bad the rock is marred by graffiti.

Spray paint and trash, the view isn't that bad if you climb.

I grew up in the area and Profile Rock was always a highlight for a weekend walk. Since childhood the trails still exist however there is a lot more trash, broken glass and spray paint on the grounds. The rock profile that takes shape of a Native Americans face has always been my favorite part of this place and if you climb to the top you can a pretty nice view!
