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.

Before you leave...

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 (Founder & Admin). As the Founder, main contributor, and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my trips with over-detailed write-ups 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, site maintainance, and app development for iOS and Android . I simply ask that if you find MyHikes' trail guides helpful to please consider becoming a Supporter to help keep the site, iOS, and Android apps available to everyone.

Supporters unlock website and in-app perks with a one-time payment of $25 (you renew) 😎👍. Or you can simply make a Donation of your choice without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing - both quick and free 🎉

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike!️
