I've done this one twice now and I love it. It's definitely challenging because the whole trail is full of rocks, just like the name says, and the view is beautiful.

Wear good shoes!! Watch for snakes. But a fun and challenging section of the trail. There is also a sort of mini river of rocks before the actually gigantic rock field that's worth checking out. I found some trash among the boulders, let's keep it clean.

Good hike but parts of it can be more on the hard side than moderate as the sign at the trailhead suggests. Definitely need a good pair of hiking shoes because it's a pretty rocky trail.
