Submarine Rock is a popular stop for jeep tours and mountain bikers, and many hikers include it as a side hike from the Broken Arrow Trail. But Submarine is also a worthy hike all by itself.
Starting from the Broken Arrow trailhead on Morgan Rd follow the signs to stay on that trail for 2 miles, then take the short side path to the right signed for Submarine Rock. This interesting formation gets the name because it sticks up from the middle of the surrounding terrain like a giant red submarine (shown below).
