My wife and I had both visited Rock City as children but never together. We laughed as we thought about how different it appeared as adults. It was a lot of fun. The views from Lover's Leap were amazing.

The rock formations are such that the crevices form "streets" making the area a "Rock City". The over-look is the famous"Lover's Leap" with falls right next to it. The drive up there is scenic, and FUN on a motorcycle!

You will have NO PROBLEMS! The path is paved very well and the climbing is done by car. One you get there, it's level. You will encounter steps every now and then, but nothing strenuous.
