Attention visitors. On approximately May 1st, the Glencoe Road bridge by our Education Building will re-open – allowing visitors full access to the area. However, another bridge replacement will begin at that time on Woods Avenue – cutting off access to our main entrance from Hwy 109. During this project, Hwy 109 access to Rockwoods will be re-routed by signs to a temporary entrance – 1.3 miles west of Hwy 109 on Manchester Road. This project is expected to be complete by August 15. Visitors will still be able to access the Turkey Ridge Trail parking lot during constructions – just east of Hwy 109 on Woods Avenue. Also, be aware that the Trail Among the Trees has a foot bridge out at the halfway point - requiring hikers to cross a ravine or turn around.
In Wildwood from Highway 100, take Highway 109 south for 2 miles, then Woods Avenue west 50 yards, and Glencoe Road north to Rockwoods.
This is a predominantly forest area. Facilities/features: picnic areas and a pavilion, hiking trails, viewing blind, and a permanent stream (Hamilton Creek). The area also has a Conservation Education Center.
