Parents with children will like the hands-on experience that Indian Rocks gives to young mountain climbers. Take the stone- paved pathway toward the north and pass a picnic table. An old grade comes in from the right, and the trail follows it through a gully. The trail bears right off the grade to a ridgetop with a small peak off in the woods to the left. Amid standing dead timber that’s popular with woodpeckers, the trail turns right and wanders through mountain laurel to Indian Rocks.
