We had been here before but just drove around the loop. This time we pulled into parking area on right & got out. It's a nice little hike with little lookout areas & if you go all the way to the right there's a huge rock & lookout with view of kinzua reservoir. Really pretty. Our little guys loved the... More

This was out of the way but worth the trip up the back ,logging , gravel road!! We took our corgi with us and she had a great time climbing the rocks!! Trail is a little challenging, not smooth and watch out for roots!!

Nice hike. Gorgeous views, beautiful rocks/boulders. Watch for eagles flying over the dam on the overlooks.

A great overlook! Not only is the view magnificent but the walk is actually the best part of it, with a winding trail that is easy for even the novice hiker it leads to the overlook. Then, it meanders around and through the rocks for the more "rock curious" adventurist. A do not miss.

The area, while not as built up as Rimrock down the road, is still worth a look. Plenty of paths around, leading to rock cliffs and forest clearings. The main overlook is easily accessible to children, and once you leave, there are 3 other overlooks accessible by car. Recommended when the weather isn't so hot.

We hiked the pathways at Jakes Rock. The Overlooks are beautiful. The paths are paved and suitable for all ages.

This area is less developed than Rimrock, but just as beautiful! Many paths through the forest to view the Kinzua reservoir and the natural rocks....

be sure if visiting Kinzua Reservoir / dam to drive up to / hike to jakes Rocks, the view is quite beautiful. be sure to take your camera and spend time visiting the damn and / or go fishing / swimming if you can in the summer. best time to go is in the fall with the beautiful fall colors

This is off the Longhouse Scenic Drive. There's a one way road that takes you to a picnic area & pit toilet. There is a trail that gives you a nice walk among the rocks. At one time it was paved, but the pavement is rough now. The views are very nice. The walk takes you around by the rim,... More
