Monster Rock Hiking Trail

This short trail hike leaves Big Walker Lookout parking lot and leads to a large rock outcrop. Monster Rock is an outstanding vista of the Stony Fork watershed which includes beautiful Bland County farmscapes and historic Garden Mountain to the north.  It is a nice side trip of the Big Walker Mountain Scenic Byway.  The parking lot for Monster Rock is across from the entrance road to the Big Bend Picnic Area.  A drive out this dirt road 3.9 miles to the picnic area provides equally beautiful views from the car that can be seen on the hike.  See Big Walker Lookout, Big Bend Picnic Area and Big Walker Scenic Byway.
