The Rock House Inner Loop Trail is an easy 0.7 mile hike at the Rock House Reservation in West Brookfield, Massachusetts. The Rock House Shelter is a natural rock structure that was once used by Native Americans as a winter camp and is now used as a destination sight on this hiking trail. The trail leads around Carter Pond and over to the Rock House glacial deposit on the west side of the pond, before closing the loop back at the parking lot off of route 9.
On the north section of the trail is a small cabin-like structure which can be used to get away from the rain or have a picnic with a view of the pond below.
MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller / Admin. As the main contributor and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my experiences from hikes and backpacking trips on MyHikes for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.
It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, and site maintainance . I simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.
You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time non-recurring payment 👍 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄
Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
