Summary: The trail is mostly flat with a lot of rocks on the trail. Boots with good ankle support is reccomended for this hike. The point of this hike is to take you to the lookout at the rocks and then back. There are several x-trails but as long as you continue straight on this trail you will have no problem. Once you get to the rocks you can do some scrambling but as always be careful.
In the winter and if there is enough snow this trail is also part of x-country ski trails.

When I was eight and nine my dad used to take my brother and I to Wolf Rocks Trail. It's a wonderful place to see the leaves and the rocks are AMAZING. They are huge, building sized rocks that you can climb up and even though they have graffiti sprayed all over them, they are still great. You can climb between the rocks, too which can be a little claustorphobic but still, this is one of my best childhood memories!

I really enjoyed this hike very much...quite a reward to the end. However I don't know if I would call this an easy hike. More like intermediate in my opinion but non the less what a great trail and a great view!
