The Rock City Trail Chalet is a moderately sized building near the start of the Rock City section of Coopers Rock. Its name comes from the sharply sloped roof that is reminiscent of Swiss mountain chalets. The building has a large open section facing the trail and two windows on the back wall, but is otherwise completely enclosed. It is composed of a large central room flanked by a smaller room on each side. These smaller rooms were likely intended for wood storage to fuel the fireplace on the back wall. The chalet is the most isolated structure Camp Rhododendron built. The closest road access to the building still requires a half-mile hike. The structure is unmodified, though it has been heavily graffitied and vandalized over the years.
