Nice to be there in the Fall when no one is around. Great rock formations and the hiking trail was interesting but quite rustic and a little wet.

My wife and I wanted a nice morning hike, so Rocky Arbor was recommended to us. The hiking trail is just a little over a mile, but taking in all the beautiful rock formations took us over an hour to complete the hike. We did...More
