The Barbour Rock Trail is a wide, smooth trail through a very pretty forest of mature oaks, maples and other hardwood trees. After a pleasant half mile, the forest abruptly meets the sky as it falls away into the Pine Creek Gorge. It’s an out and back trail especially designed for the handicapped, but hikers can return on an alternate footpath thus completing a one mile loop. Points of Interest: Pine Creek Gorge vista, beautiful forest setting. Please keep young children close at hand at the vista. Listen for the roar of Owassee Rapids, Pine Creek’s most challenging whitewater. Difficulty: Easiest, flat crushed aggregate path, handicapped accessible.
