Glen Burney Trail & Annie Cannon Gardens


category : Gardens
Ancient Indian trail winding along New Year's Creek in Blowing Rock. The trail, long used by Indian hunters and later as access to the turn of the century logging camps, now delights visitors and newcomers as well as old timers with an escape from day to day life. The 1.5 mile foot trail begins in the Annie Cannon Gardens, and descends some 800 feet and provides breathtaking vistas of two waterfalls, the Glen Burney(45') and the Glen Mary(55'). The trail has been there forever according to old timers who confirm that it was most likely used by Archaic Indians. Because it was used in the early part of this century by logging camps, a crew of CCC works were dispatched during the Great Depression to improve the trail from Globe Valley to Blowing Rock. The existing portion, used today to access the falls, is the only remaining section preserved in usable condition. Enjoy an inviting two hour round trip walk into a virgin Appalachian hardwood forest with spectacular cascades.
