A Short Walk to the Iconic King & Queen Seat – Recommend for Beginner Hikers

A couple weeks ago, Trevor, Logan and I decided to visit the iconic King and Queen Seat at the Rock State Park, Maryland. Even though I live only an hour away from the park , I have never gotten a chance to visit until this year.  Isn’t it funny how we always choose to travel further away  but often miss the ones near us?

The hike or rather a walk to the Iconic view is very flat and easy, much easier than I first thought.  The path is also very dog friendly ; we even brought Deli and Tash closer to the edge of the cliff without any problems.

Best Time to Go:

King & Queen Seat is a well known spot in Rock State Park, I’d recommend to visit either early in the morning or late afternoon to avoid crowds.

Parking:

There’re two parking places. One is near the road, where requires a steep hike to the cliff.  We decided to drive in further up the hill, where the walk is very flat and short  – approx. 10 mins.

Where Else to Go:

There are additional trails in the Rock State Park that lead to waterfalls. The hikes in the area are fairly easy.
