John Rock Professional Review and Guide
"From the Pisgah Fish Hatchery and Wildlife Education Center, the route follows Cat Gap Loop Trail across Cedar Rock Creek and then travels beside the creek to reach Cedar Rock Falls. Leaving the creek, the path continues uphill and touches through multiple hemlock groves to reach John Rock Trail. After climbing over the top of John Rock you will see a marked side trail that leads to an exposed rock and panoramic overlook. Enjoy viewing the west slopes of Looking Glass Mountain and then return to the John Rock Trail and follow it downhill to rejoin Cat Gap Loop Trail and conclude the hike."
