Description

The Rockpile Road Trail is true to its name and very rocky. The trail goes past and through many rocky outcrops and rock piles. On the small loop near the Its Gotta Go Trail there is a hill that is crowned with a strange, bluish wavy rock called limestone pavement. The trail follows along the same ridge top that extends to the Its Gotta Go Trail.

Howe's Cave on the Rockpile Road Trail

Near the end of the Lollypop Trail is a deep, five foot deep hole in the rock. I think it's the entrance for Howe's Cave.
