A short trail that wends through magnificent rock formations and a rhododendron forest. Easy and interesting hike.

A fun little hike, especially if you enjoy bouldering. The trail is pretty flat, but the “rock city” is enchanting and provides some fun climbing, so bring your shoes and a crash pad! We went in the late fall and saw only a few other hikers.

This was a fun, short trail! Was the only person on the trail today! Clearly marked, well-maintained!

Fun, easy walk through the rocks. Would like to go back and take my time to enjoy the formations. It was pretty busy when I was there, so I would like to go back during a weekday to enjoy the trail in solitude.

This is a beautiful trail that gets heavy foot traffic in the tourist season. It's well marked, well maintained and is family/pet friendly. The "rock city" at the end of the trail is absolutely amazing, but beware of rattlesnakes!! This trail is one of my top three trails in the park (along with Ravens Rock and the Underlook). Don't forget about the R.C. trail when visiting Coopers Rock, you won't be disappointed!!

Great rock structures. My brother and I used to play here for hours when we were kids. Very easy hike with lots to explore.

It's easy to lose the trail, but hard to get lost because there are so many people everywhere. The rock formations are amazing, and the walking is easy. Worth the trip.
