Great short hike to a cool stone formation.

This hike is a great, short hike for all ages. It shows the sandstone formation of the area very well and features a large cliff, an overhang, and a small stream at the bottom. The hike is only 0.4 of a mile total and has a small elevation change. It is probably the easiest hike in this area. 

The parking for this trail is right off of the main road that runs through Pickett State Park. The parking area is large and can accommodate 10 - 15 cars. There are two trail-heads at this parking lot, so make sure to follow the one that is labeled Indian Rockhouse. The trail-head is across the road from the parking lot, so be careful when crossing the road. The trail is mostly flat until the end when you hike down the far side of the cliff. When you get down to the bottom, you will see the massive overhanging cliff and the sandstone formations.
