White Rock Rim Trail
by Braden Purcell

White Rock Mountain offers great scenic views and has 3 CCC built cabins and Lodge for guest. The OHT intersects with the rim trail on the mountain. This tim trail offers amazing views and wonderful sunsets/rises. Great for a day hike with the kids or girlfriend. I like to rent a cabin for a few nights and enjoy time in one of the CCC built shelters along this trail taking in the views.

There are 30 premium geocaches located along the 15 mile trail, each one containing a code that when deciphered will lead you to a bonus cache full of swag. Watch out for poison ivy, in season this trail is saturated with it. I parked at the end of the trail and started at the suspension bridge inside Devils Den State Park. Lots of up and down, a few spurs to lookouts, rock formations, a cave, rivers, old cemetery, water falls (when in season) along this trail. I like to camp at junction around mile marker 10. Junction has primitive camp sites complete with fire rings and is a great water source. This leaves you with only 5 1/2 miles to hike the next day. Awesome trail for overnight hikes.

Really nice trail. Rolling terrain made for a decent workout. We really liked the occasional sign posts of things to note on the trail and showing the tornado damage there. Last half of the trail doesn't seem well used but it is worth doing the whole thing. We thought we might swim along the way but the rocks were a bit slippery and who wants to be wet while hiking.

This is a beautiful trail. It does go down to the lake which means that you'll be walking back up. There are a few narrow, steep sections.

Easy hike, beautiful views. Unfortunately wasn't able to enjoy the beautiful overlook completely thanks to a sorority holding an outing there - but I plan to go again when I can see the valley in peace and quiet. Great for any age or skill level.

Glory Hole Waterfall Trail

There was not much water flowing on the day that I went. It's downhill all the way to the falls which means an uphill all the way back :) it was a very hot day with lots of bugs when I went to. Spring or after a decent rain would have been better.
