Rock City Gardens

Friday, August 2, 2013
And -- now I know where all those See Rock City birdhouses come from! We visited Rock City for the first time. This is an attraction taking advantage of nature's rock formations and adding landscaping, stone bridge and walking paths.  This is a self guided walking tour of some of the most beautiful landscapes in the country. You enter The Enchanted Trail -- passing beautiful gardens with an array of seasonal flowers and trees. The stone artworks (massive formations) includes a garden of piled up pebbles, a rock shaped like a mushroom, and statues along the way. The music as you go along the trail is very relaxing too. If you like lookout points, valleys, and waterfalls, you should probably see Rock City. 

Entrance Trail
The Zig-zag trails
Underpass into the cave

   He had to squeeze his tummy at needle's eye  path,  you have to slide yourself sideways to get to the other side. Challenging but we had a great time

   The swing-a-long-bridge is not for the faint of hearts.  You are suspended high up the mountain, crossing a bridge that looks too scrawny to hold more than 25 people, and it  swings!  Well... it's really people that are swaying back and forth that causes the bridge to swing (it's more fun when you are the one swaying). The views from the bridge are breathtaking!
  This is one of my favorite places to visit.  You can't beat nature's perfect background.
Overlooking views,  I realize that life is beautiful and nature is fantastic

  11. looks like a very cool and fun walk, especially love that very narrow passage in between rocks ( needle like passage), I get headaches with swaying bridge when there are other people on it because they swing it too much, however, i could cross it if probably only I on the bridge since I know what is coming :)
