Rock House Reservation Trail

Rock House Reservation Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"It’s hard to tell what the highlight of this hike will be for your children— there are so many. A big draw is the large natural rock cave from which the reservation takes its name. The “Rock House,” formed by glaciers and used by Native Americans as a hunting camp and shelter, is exciting for kids to explore.

Other highlights include a pond, a balancing rock, a butterfly garden, and a scenic vista. To learn more about the geology and natural and cultural history of the reservation, you can order an interpretive guide from the Trustees in advance or pick one up for a small fee on site during summer weekends."

This is a fantastic trail. We hiked 2.58 miles and spent a few hours on the various trails, rock formations, and boulders. It's fun for all ages and if you walk slowly through the pine grove near the Butterfly Garden you can spot a few flying around. It's not a hard trail by any means but it's a good scenic batch of trails.
