Resort Excursions

Experience mother nature

The Rock offers more than just a golf course. Enjoy an easy or moderate hike on one of our three hiking trails all within the property of The Rock Golf Club & Resort, featuring four waterfalls. You can also sign up for a guided tour to learn about the history of the property and surrounding region, such as two U.S. Presidents who traveled Old Toll Road and the findings of petroglyphs dating back to 2000 B.C.

The Rock Golf Club and Resort Waterfall

Waterfall Hiking Trails

As you venture down Old Emory Gap Toll Road Trailhead, you’ll encounter three beautiful waterfalls: Whispering Creek Falls, our famous Gauley Falls, which can be seen off the #8 tee box, and Triple Falls. You can decide to stick to your current path or take a turn left onto Old Whispering Falls Trail, which runs parallel and leads back to Old Emory Gap Toll Road Trailhead. If you decide to take a right onto Emory Creek Trail, keep traveling until you intersect again onto Old Emory Gap Toll Road Trailhead to rest by the Upper Emory Creek Falls.
