Comment: Wonderful trail filled with rocky features. Can take your time and enjoy the walk. Walking cane for those less agile or needing support. Steep in a couple of areas but not what I would call difficult. Trail ends at Rock House Cave (quite a wonder). You must double-back up the trail to exit. Our 9 year old grandson absolutely loved this hike! We were glad we could keep up with him on this trail.

Comment: This short hike is another must do when visiting Petit Jean.
The unique rock formations known as "turtle rocks" greet you on your decent down to the "rock house". Once at the destination, you can see numerous pictographs that ancient Native Americans scribed high on the ceiling of the overhang. There is also a unique "mortar and pestle" that was once supposedly used.
This is a great place to explore alone, but highly recommend doing a guided tour where you can learn so much more.
***** 5 stars

Comment: We hiked Rock House Cave Trail over Memorial Day weekend. It was a fairly easy hike; even our three year old hiked it (instead of backpacking on his Daddy's back). The Rock House Cave is very neat. We were there close to dusk so the Native American drawings were not easy to see but I captured a picture of one that was very clear. It was a really neat area. We also loved the turtle rocks!
