Off The Beaten Path
Barren Mountain in the Fall
by: Photojournalist Barry-Scott Hall

Barren Mountain - Elliottsville

Beautiful, strenuous climb, with many unique point of interest. Appalachian Trail and side Trail pass spectacular falls, gorge, and slide caves. Excellent views in all directions from summit (abandoned fire tower). Side trail leads (right) to remote mountain pond.

Slugundy Falls (road drivable in good conditions) to Cloud Pond. 4.2 miles: elevation gains 2200 ft. Barren Mountain

Direction: Take the Elliottsville road to the bridge and bear right. Go past Borestone Mount and continue following the dirt road, for 1 1/2 miles. Barren Mountain will be in front of you, continue until the road ends. The trail is marked, but take caution, it is not a well traveled trail since many people do not hike this mountain.

Important: Communications such as phones or radios may be several hours away on foot. Sensible precautions are in order.

Barren Mountain is a beautiful mountain to take pictures from the base.
