The Rocky River is carved through ancient shale deposits and is experienced from both sides of the river on this hike.
As you get close to the end of the hike you will come out of the woods into the South Mastic Picnic area. Stay along the river following the Cottonwood Loop trail. This will take you back to your car.
Experiencing both sides of the river is the uniqueness of this hike. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. Click on the Learn More button above to download a guided trail map.
