We were a few miles along the Keyser Creek trail when we did the Rocky Point loop. It was short, and we were hoping to get above the big pine trees for a better view of the area. We actually had better views on Keyser Creek, but the trail was fun.
The first climb was a good time. The trail was narrow and bumpy in spots, and the dirt was fairly loose. It was also narrow in most sections, and we were lucky we didn't see any other vehicles on the trail.
We didn't have time to follow the county road north and out of the trail system, so we had to save that for later. Instead, we turned right to head back down to Keyser Creek. It wasn't long before we came up to a big, dead tree across the trail. It had many long, dead branches sticking out of it and it was impossible to move all of the way out of the way. We all got close to the edge in order to climb up and over the log, but no one had any issues.
We worked our way to sitting on top of Rocky Point, but it didn't look any different than the rest of the trail. We were surrounded by trees and the views were largely blocked. We kept going.
On the way down the hill we looked over to finally see Rocky Point, a big hill of rock that we were just on. The descent didn't seem as big as the original ascent, but it was still fun. It wasn't long until we were off the trail and back to Keyser Creek to continue west.
