“Good short hike, interesting rock formations”

Owner description: Kids will enjoy exploring the jumble of boulders that forms this "house," beyond which you'll discover a small, serene pond.

Rock House Reservation is a great place for a short hike. The overall property size is great for those looking for a 1 hour or so hike. Trails are well marked and well maintained, the view from Rock House is very cool. I agree with some of the other posts-the Overlook is overgrown and doesn't give you a scenic view.

Glad to see the Trustees of Reservations are maintaining the property well, and one of my "regular" local places for short hikes.

Short and interesting hike for kids, loads of features like rock crags and water and cabins. Good and easy way to get kids outside.

Enjoyable walk/hike. Beautiful landscape. Hard to believe it is just a few steps off of Rte 32. Pack a picnic and your camera. You can make this a 30 minute trip or you can make it last a few hours. Thanks for establishing this convenient and pristine area.

The hike to the scenic vista was along a nice ascending trail, however couldn't find the scenic overlook. Found a bench with what could have been a vista but trees had grown to obscure the view. Was this the overlook?

Tried to find info on the reddish,brownish, gold rock on the website. Interested but no luck online. (museum had info, but forgot.)
