This place is amazing and totally worth it to go see, especially in fall. I loved it and will go back to see other attractions. I'm usually skeptical and expect more, but rock city definitely rocks!

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.
