Molly's Rock Picnic Area, managed and operated by the USDA Forest Service, lies within the boundaries of the Sumter National Forest. Sometimes referred to as the “Molly's Rock Recreation Area”, it was built on the site of an old homestead and features a fishing pond, several picnic tables, and a picnic shelter. A short nature trail has some signs with interesting information about how the forest “recycles” itself
