Backbone Rock Professional Review and Guide
"This short hike packs a lot of punch. Start at Backbone Rock, a historic recreation area developed by the Civilian Conservation Corps. Walk hand-laid stone steps to Backbone Falls, a slender spiller tumbling into a rock gorge. Return to the trailhead; then climb the actual Backbone Rock, a slender sandstone spine where views open. Finally, drop to visit Beaverdam Creek, a classic mountain stream."
