With its short climb, welcoming summit, and great views, Rocky Mountain is a must-visit hike for families with children. The hike is less strenuous than that of nearby Bald Mountain, with a more gradual approach and a pleasant forest to stroll through. One or two steep places may require extra care, but for the most part the trail climbs at a moderate pace and ends in a wide, flat outcropping with excellent views of the surrounding lakes and mountains.
