“Amazing View”
Reviewed July 18, 2014

I don't really understand why so many reviews say this hike is barely worth it. The hike itself is short and uneventful but that view! It's awesome. It almost feels like dinosaurs should be trotting around down below. Not to mention what a weird phenomena it is to see water seeping out of this huge rock. There were also some very lovely plants growing out of the crevices above. I thought it was very unique and somewhat magical. Definitely worth going there.

“Straight Up Hill & Anti-clamactic on Arrival”
Reviewed July 17, 2014

Take the bus to weeping rock trail. The hike, while short, is pretty much straight up the mountain. You may need to take a couple breaks if you are not used to hiking. Once you are there, the view is pretty much of the rocks and plants, with a small, slightly wet viewing area. Shouldn't take you more than 5 minutes to admire the scenery.

This is also very similar to what you see at the lower emerald pool. So if you have to do 1 hike pick Emerald Pools and skip this one.

“Nothing extraordinary”
Reviewed July 15, 2014

This is a fairly short but steep trail leading to the Weeping Rock, where water drips out of the walls all year round. Both the trail and the Weeping Rock are not that extraordinary, and you will probably find yourself turning back within a few minutes of reaching the end.

“Average but if your short on time worth it”
Reviewed July 13, 2014

This is a small little hike and the reward at the end isn't the greatest but if you have kids which I do and you don't want to go on a really long hike this is a great way to get out of the car and go see something cool that doesn't take a lot of effort.

“Easy hike, must see”
Reviewed July 9, 2014

This is an interesting hike for geology buffs. Water flowing down from the top of the mountain through the layers of sandstone rock hits a layer of slate, and then flows horizontally until it exits the side of the mountain in the form of a seep. It rains all of the time at Weeping Rock, and a number of different plant species grow here. You can stand under the sandstone cliff and watch it rain.
