Added by Zinnia Xu

Take in amazing views of the dense forests at the King and Queen seat rock outcropping. This hike is a short drive from Baltimore and Philadelphia

Park at the Rocks State Park Office lot. You can pick up maps here before you head out. The trail starts at the end of the parking lot. Take the White Trail Loop to the right. The King and Queen Seat outcropping is a short hike away. Bring snacks and spend some time here enjoying the view. After you've sufficiently enjoyed the scenery, complete the rest of the loop via the white trail.

If you've come here for climbing, there's mostly trad and top rope. Most of the climbs are around the King and Queen seat and the Strawberry Jam Pillar. Strawberry Jam is a popular route.
