Trail Description

The White Rocks Trail features a 600 million year old pinnacled ridge of Antietam quartzite. The rock outcrop represents the northernmost terminus of the Appalachian Blue Ridge, a tectonic and physiographic province that extends from northwestern Georgia. Because of the special nature of rock bedding and jointing displayed in the quartzite outcrops, it is considered to be an excellent geologic educational site. The trail follows a light blue blaze, climbing from the valley floor at Kuhn Road up onto the straight, rocky ridge before connecting with the Appalachian Trail at its western edge.
