About the Hike:
Rock Rimmon is a small cliff-faced hill located right in the city of Manchester, in Rock Rimmon Park. The top of the hill, reached by a very easy path around the cliff, presents a unique view over the city from very close. This path begins on the far left side of the park, past the tennis courts. An even shorter but very steep path begins straight ahead from the parking area. Once on top, you are rewarded for very little effort with a close-up over the city. An opening in the trees on the west side reveals the Uncanoonuc Mountains.
