“Seneca Rocks contemplates the surrounding valleys as an imposing reminder of prehistory a striking relic of the geological forces that shape the landscape as well as human history”- From the Seneca Brochure.
Today the Seneca Rocks offer Rock Climbers the opportunity to climb 375 mapped routes ,only trained climbers should attempt to scale Rocks.
As we are NOT trained rock climbers so we took the 1.5 Mile hike to the top of the Left Peak just close to the “finger” on the left.
It is a moderate switchback climb and not a very difficult one it took us an hour and ten minutes to get to the “official” top (the end of the trail) and another 15 minutes to the top of the top.
THE ROCKS FROM FAR.
SWITHCHBACKS AND MUSHROOM ALONG THE HIKE.
THE OFFICIAL TOP AND THE END OF THE TRAIL.
CLIMBING TO THE TOP OF THE TOP AND A REWARDING VIEW……
Going down took us 35 minutes and without any pressure on the knees.
As we sat at the picnic area facing the Rocks ,it was hard to imagine that only a short while ago we were UP there,it sure was a good feeling.
We got back “home” just before the rain started and still had time to grill some chicken.
Sorry no waterfalls today…
Thanks for visiting.
