The Rock House Reservation is a 196-acre (79 ha) open space preserve located in West Brookfield, Massachusetts. The property, acquired in 1993 by the land conservation non-profit organization The Trustees of Reservations, is named for a natural rock shelter once used as a winter camp by Native Americans. Its location near two, long Native American footpaths suggests that it may also have been a trail camp and meeting place.Put Rock House Reservation into our West Brookfield trip site to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in West Brookfield.

It is suitable for the family hiking definitely. Rocks are adventurous for us to sneak in and out. Enjoying the beautiful view of the pond from the rock house. It is worth to visit there for less...

Nice place to enjoy the natural Beauty of the area and take a nice walk. The rock outcrops are very interesting. They seem to be everywhere. Go out and discover new spots yourself.
Nice little short loop trails back here, but you can make a decent trip if you kinda zigzag around and hit all of them... but some pretty cool views of the little pond from the cabin as well as down below, and all the trails are clear and the little mud crossing bridges are updated regularly as well 😎👍
