Considered a portal to another dimension by some New Age writers, Bell Rock often attracts photographers. It's distinctive for its small, cone-shaped upper butte and wide base. Consider a hike along the 5.8 km (3.6 mi) trail called the Bell Rock Pathway. This ends at a vista overlooking the butte, where you'll also find refreshments, toilets, and a shaded area.
