Summary: This is a nice short hike for the family. There are a few places that a parent will want to "hang onto" children under 9 yrs old. My 6 year old made it fine in 1 1/2 hours (each way) with some hand holding and lifting onto one boulder. In heavy rain times, check at ranger station (near lower trailhead) about stream crossings. There are great views at the top. Also, this is an ideal place to watch Bald Eagles during winter months.
Trailhead: Trailhead going bottom to top is located beside concrete bridge at the entrance to the Buck's Pocket State Park Campgrounds. Alternately, going top to bottom the trailhead is at the picnic area near the Point Rock parking area (Lat:34.47392 Lon:-86.04567)
