The half mile, steep hike to the 2225 foot summit of Rocky Mountain has some great views of Fourth Lake and the surrounding area from its open summit. Simply follow yellow DEC discs up the steep, well worn trail to the summit. The round trip of this hike is just shy of one mile, with an elevation gain of 448 feet.

The parking area is found off NY 28, just east of Eagle Bay (itself about 11 miles east of Old Forge). There is a well marked parking area on the left for the Rocky Mountain & Black Bear Mountain trailhead.
