Did as part of day hike from Caledonia State Park to Pen Mar Park and this stretch was the best part of it. From Caledonia the initial ascent may seem long but is gradual as well. Between Caledonia and South Mountain area is mostly hiking along the large rock/boulder formations that make up Rocky Mountain. There are several spots of 'chimney' rock formations along the the way which keep it scenic. Excellent views from Chimney Rock. Was there earlier so no one else was there at the time, but imagine it gets pretty crowded in warmer/nicer weather.
