Nice 6 mile out and back from the Ralph Stover State Park parking area. We went a bit further than the mapped trail and found a fun creek access area about 3 miles into the hike. I recommend parking at the Tory Rd parking area (150 Tory Rd, Pipersville, PA 18947) and accessing High Rocks from there. You are missing nothing by cutting off the walk in along the road from the State Park Road trail head. If you choose to stay with the original trailhead, the trail access off of the paved road is about .5 miles or so up the road and is not marked. Look for the road spur sign and you/ll see the trail. The trail begins with a few yellow blazes, but that doesn't last beyond the first quarter mile, so be sure you have a map handy. That being said, the trails were fairly easy to follow.

Most of this trail is along the wooded path up top and has a couple drop in locations that allows access to the creek. The area is overgrown with poison ivy, so plan ahead and keep kids close. We had no problems with ticks. The views are outstanding and the creek isn't bad. You can make this hike as long as you want if you keep moving down the trail along the creek line. However, the further you go, the more overgrown the trail becomes. We were certainly by ourselves 3 miles into the trail. Most people turned around by mile 2. This is a scenic area that I found to be worth the drive. It isn't difficult by any means. Enjoy!

Not a hike, but nice 1 mile walk along the river and through the picnic areas. Would have been nice to kayak there and they tours on specific dates to do so. Nice camping in the area and great for families.

Trails are not marked. River is nice but couldn't find much in the way of hiking. Ending up walking to High Rocks and hiking there

We had a great time hiking along the creek and crossing the creek by stepping on the rocks. The smooth rocks along the edge were great for skipping! There were hawks, butterflies, and a deer with two does. The old Pony Bridge was cool to explore and we could've spent more time there if we had all day. We had more fun here then at the High Rocks.
