  • Amazing! Beautiful day. A very unique experience to find in Southern Illinois. The trail is moderate. Well surfaced but steep and is slick when wet.
  • This has got to be the most beautiful natural landscape in Illinois. The loop to the rock formations is 1/4 mile of uneven stones. The rock formations are beautiful and the views are even better. You can crawl and play around on the rocks at your own risk. This is definitely worth the trip out of the way because it assuredly is as there is not much else in Southern Illinois.
  • A great little loop with some great views! It's a good place to bring the kids just make sure they don't fall off the rocks.
  • Super dope for all ages and healths. Easy short loop. Climbing around is great for kids. Just keep an eye on them
  • This was awesome. However, this, Pounds Hollow, and Rim Rock will take most normal people a day to go through with taking pictures. Other than those things, there is nothing...NOTHING to do in the area.
