Rocky Face Park is a park in Hiddenite, North Carolina. This park has rock climbing, hiking, geocaching, primitive camping, and even a small playground for children. The most popular hike at this park is called the Vertical Mile Challenge. The park has several great trails. See the Rocky Face Trail Map for an overview of the entire trail system. The entire park is very well marked, and there are park maps at every intersection. There is a total of 5 trails in the park for hiking.
The park has 2 main buildings. To get to the trail heads, be sure that you pass the first recreational park area and continue to the 2nd area. This is where the trail heads start. When you get to the second recreational area, park and look at the very large rock wall, the stairs to the trail heads are at the left side of the rock wall, at the end of the parking lot.
When to Go
This park is very popular with rock climbers, as there is a very large sheer rock face that they can practice their skills on. See the Rocky Face Website for current park hours, which change throughout the year.
You must have a permit to do any rock climbing. See the Permitting page for details.
Dogs are welcome on leash. Dogs can do all the trails here but some may be a bit nervous coming down the rock face if you go that way.
