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.

Hey guys, just came here to say a couple of days ago i came here. My friend, and I started on the Yellow trail, but almost as soon as you start it theres orange spray paint marking the way to the old Quarry. hike there and back is around two and a half miles. Also bonus, somewhere around the quarry is a painting of Pickle Rick. Happy hiking.

this trail is amazing and all of the graffiti on the rocks is so fun to look at! yellow trail is marked fairly well but 90% of the other trails are not. i recommend visiting a few times to go on all of the trails and seeing each part of the beautiful forest.

The yellow trail was ok, the best part however was near the river. Climbing the rocks on the river bed was a lot of fun.

Very pretty waterfalls and fun climbing along the rocks. The graffiti is a shame.

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.

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!
