Briefly about the general area:
What would a site like Middle Creek be without exciting nearby characteristics like Natural Bridge. Don't leave Middle Creek without going to Black Rock Mountain State Park, and on a pleasant day you can take a hike along the Bartram Trail. This is such a great river. A tour to Estatoah Falls will fill your soul with good feelings, and if the weather is good, you can go for a hike along the Three Forks Trail. You'll meet a lot of people from Dillard here, and skiing at Scaly Mountain is one of those things you just have to do.
