Nice hike however Rocky Run had high water and was difficult to cross. Plan on aqueous footwear if possible. There are rocks to walk across on and keep out of the water in some places but many were loose and wobbled quite a bit. After the initial crossing of Rocky Run the trail makes a sharp left and travels directly upstream of Rocky Run which had completely overrun the trail for about 20 yds, Spotted lots of yellow violets and some bluets. Awesome views from the top of Hidden Rocks!

The hike was beautiful and fun exactly as described, but as far as solitude I would give it one star. While camping at the overlook we were visited by a boy scout troop, four hikers, and three other campers who came to camp at the same look out. We could also hear cars from the road on the overlook. We left shortly afterwards. Overall I would say it's a wonderful day hike that seems to have been discovered, but don't go to camp. A quick picnic is a better option.

Lovely wooded trail, almost rain forest in character along the creek. The Hidden Rocks are quite impressive, even though the view from the top is limited. There are sections of the trail that are quite steep and rocky, and the creek crossings could be tricky if the water level was up. Enough of a challenge for these 60 year-old hikers, but one we thoroughly enjoyed. Highly recommended!

A great hike! but had our license plates stolen. Was coming back to the parking lot while they were in the act. They might have broken in if we hadn't come back right then!

I have no complaints regarding this hike. The hike, albeit fairly short, seems to include a bit of everything: a nice flowing creek, a waterfall, solid views, and incredible rocks. The cliff was astounding as you walk up and alongside of it. Don't miss the Hidden Crack (which is a little hidden) for a view which is slightly better than what you get from atop the other section of rock. The trail was easy to follow and the parking area was easy to find. Overall, the hike took about an hour and 45 minutes including some short breaks along the way. The trail is certainly rocky so if you are somewhat unsure of your step or you aren't a fan of a rocky trail, maybe this wouldn't be the best hike for you, but this is an incredible hike for how short you have to hike.
