    Closest town: New Castle, 14 miles south. From here, a short trail leads out, crossing two branches of Trapper Creek and a meadow to reach an Barbours Creek Wilderness book spur road off of FR In the upland hardwoods at the beginning of the trail, large oaks and hickories in what is called late-order successional woodland screen out sunlight. Cattails grow from the shallows. Among the flowers to discover here are the beautiful showy orchis Orchis spectabilisthe crested dwarf iris Iris cristatajack-in-the-pulpit Arisaema triphyllumbloodroot Sanguinaria canadensisblack-eyed susan Rudbekia hirtatrout lily Erythronium americanumand many varieties of trillium.

    Scramble down Barbours Creek Wilderness book slope — it is steep! Go left here on a narrow rooty track to cross a mossy footbridge at a spring and traverse a slope with the sound of Trapper Creek coursing below. We returned to the road and headed south for a time until we passed the private property. White oak, northern red oak, and hickory dominate on the north and west, while chestnut oak, scarlet oak and yellow pine are found on ridgetops and midslopes on the east. Beneath busy Interstate 81 north of Roanoke and unnoticed by travelers zipping up and down the Great Valley of Virginia runs the little stream made famous by Annie Dillard's Pilgrim at Tinker Creek HarperCollins,

    From the 3,foot summit of Montgomery Knob, water comes cascading through a gap in the Rich Patch Mountains, coursing over and around boulders, shooting through flumes, hesitating only briefly in quiet pools in its eagerness to reach Craig Creek. Forest Service has constructed attractive facilities and trails. The highest elevation is feet along the crest of Pine Mountain and the lowest elevation of about feet is at Barbours Creek. These are easy leg stretchers that follow old roads along Barbours Creek. At about mile Trail: 1-mile interpretive loop along old railroad grade and Mill Creek.
