Rockwoods Reservation is one of our favorite hiking spots near the city because it’s much less crowded and subsequently quieter.
We checked out the Rock Quarry Trail this time, taking the longer loop option of 2.1 miles. It’s still not a very long trail but does have some elevation.
I liked this trail more than the others there since the path itself was less rocky. I like the challenge of rockier hikes but hate having to watch my footing constantly.
This trail also has a few caves though they are fenced off. I still enjoyed passing them and you can get pretty close without going in or disturbing any wildlife inside.
I can’t wait to explore more hiking spots in the Midwest this Spring!
