    Wow - this hike is well worth the effort! The 700 feet of elevation gain is fairly strenous but the views from the top are magnificent. It is fairly popular so my dreams of sitting on the rocks enjoying the beauty of God's creation in silence were somewhat dashed by the dozen or so other people at the top but the hike is still most definitely worth it. I also saw a lot of deer on the hike down. Great experience!

    Nice uphill climb workout. Spectacular views from The Rocks. Trails rocky in spots. Multiple trails for loop hikes. Overall this was an excellent hike.
