A trail that begins in Sells Park in the City of Athens, continuing into Strouds Run State Park.

Overview

Avoid when wet, it tends to stay muddy.

Description

After climbing away from the pond at Sells Park, Rockhouse Trail starts out with a mile of really fun, fast singletrack. Around the one-mile point, a steep downhill to a wooden bridge begins a more technical section of the trail, with steeper grades, more roots, and some sand and rocks.

After passing Crumley Ridge on the left, the trail enters into a section that has trouble draining after a period of rain (and should be avoided when wet). This section features a thick blanket of bluebell wildflowers each April.

After passing the Turtlehead Cave intersection on the left (a short out and back trip either via bike or hike to a cool cave), a wooden bridge leads to a very tight switchback followed by a very steep climb. This climb leads to the White Oak Connector, another short climb that leads to an intersection with the Athens Trail.
