A short, strenuous singletrack loop showcasing Rocks State Park.

Nathan Flaim

Overview

If you park at the Rock Bridge Picnic area, a day use fee applies. Parking at the park office saves you the fee, but parking there is more limited.

Runner Notes [Suggest Changes]

The running is pleasant and punctuated by moderate hilliness. Only one climb/descent is truly steep, not interminable, located just behind the King and Queen's Seat. A few short sections are technical enough to slow progress to a cautious jog, but the trail flows well for the most part.

Description [Suggest Changes]

This 2.2 mile loop feels longer than it is. It is excellent singletrack - clearly signed, blazed, and well-maintained. Budget enough time for a stop at the King and Queens Seat overlook, a 190 foot Schist outcropping overlooking Deer Creek Gorge. It is a popular destination for runners and rock climbers alike. The trail can be accessed from the park office (on Knopp Road), or from the Rock Ridge Picnic area by taking the Red Trail 0.2 mi. in either direction (access from St. Clair Bridge Road).

Flora & Fauna [Suggest Changes]

Typical of eastern deciduous forest. Highlights include red raspberries in July and a particularly loquacious Wood Thrush.

This is my go-to for solid training runs year round. Great location for hill workouts, power hiking practice, and there are a few technical sections that are great preparation for many east coast ultras. Dec 14, 2016
