St. Peter's Village The Rocks Trail is a 1.3 mile heavily trafficked loop trail located near Elverson, Pennsylvania that features a river and is rated as moderate. The trail offers a number of activity options and is best used from March until October. Dogs and horses are also able to use this trail.
The Rocks are near an old quarry, which used to operate in St. Peter's Village. Many Boulders from the quarry were dumped in the creek along with natural boulders, which resulted in a pretty cool place to hike and hop around. Trails are very poorly marked, and the trail head at the north end of town has no markings or explanation of what lies where. At the trail-head, there will be three trails to take. Use the first trail on the left to access the rocks.
This is a beautiful spot that could be even more beautiful if it weren't for all the spray paint. It is literally every where you look. I wish the US or PA park service would take over this spot and put an end to the abuse. The hike was great - difficult, but nice. The river and the rocks are beautiful but the spray paint is out of control.
Bit of trash especially near start of trail. Otherwise, big, fun rocks to climb on with my 3 year old!
I really enjoyed this hike. One piece of advice, all of the families start coming in around noon so get there on the early side. Some people don't like the spray painted rocks but I think they are so fun to look at and it adds so much character!
Trails are many, I followed one that was marked with an Om. Spray paint marks many of these rocks, but after a mile it stops. The yellow blazed trail was very well marked, but the others, not so much. It seems like many people like to use these unmarked trails for mountain biking, and the yellow trail system seems to be used as a party venue more than anything else.
