The path cutting across from Red Cross to Longpath is not a real trail. It starts off looking like a forged path but my friend and I got stuck in a tangle of branches for about a quarter mile. After getting through (with cuts and bruises) the rest of the path was really pleasant. I would recommend staying only on the marked trails as the app map is inaccurate.

This review covers more than Rockhouse Mountain, but I could not find a better location to put this review. I started from the parking lot at Lake Skannatati and headed north out of the parking lot on the Arden-Surebridge trail up Pine Swamp Mountain. The hike was approximately 9 miles and takes the Red Crosses trail around Hasenclever Mountain and to the Tiorati Brook. You will return on the Breech trail up and over Nat House Mountain, past a Civil War cemetery, and Rockhouse Mountain. In all, I would rate this a moderate trail with on real difficult sections or climbs.
