A trail winding through aspen, spruce, and granite outcrops, with options for a longer traverse to Chena Hot Springs. The granite Angel Rocks shoot up out of the forest on the hillside above the Chena River, offering plenty of cracks and crevices to explore and good views to enjoy. The area around the rocks is a pleasant scene of granite, aspen, and spruce.
It’s a steep, somewhat rough trail, but this is a much easier hike to see a tor landscape than the hike to the Granite Tors. Keep an eye on the kids, though; there are some steep drops here, and the trail that loops through the rocks and back down to the river is steep and rough. For a longer hike, try the traverse to Chena Hot Springs across the 2,800-foot alpine ridge east of Angel Rocks.
