Named for the large ship sized rock perched over a turn on this trail, the Boat Rock provides access to the higher trails on the mountain. The first half mile packs in a steep, rocky climb but then the trail mellows out a bit. Several large wooden bridges span rocks and wet areas adding interest along the way.

Access Info

Access Boat Rock from Middle Earth Trail.

      The trails are starting to get covered with fall leaves. After another week of leaves and another rain or two they’ll probably start to slick up...
