How to get there
From the intersection of Route 9N and Route 22 in Westport follow Route 22. Continue for 0.5 miles to Lake Shore Road on the right. Follow Lake Shore Road for 4.5 miles to the trailhead on the right.
This trail leaves 0.9 miles from the trailhead from the Lewis Clearing Bay Trail. From the trail intersection you will climb a short bit before starting a moderate drop down to the intersection with the Calamity Trail. Take a left at this intersection and start a much steeper descent to the Shore of Lake Champlain at Barn Rock Bay. Barn Rock is at the north side of the bay, towering above.
It can take a couple of hours to complete this short, 3 mile hike.
Note: The Split Rock Wild Forest is known for having timber rattlesnakes and can often be seen sunning themselves at lookout and along the trail. It is highly advisable that your pets stay on a leash and to never approach or corner a timber rattlesnake. Negative encounters with humans are not likely as they are easily spooked. If you or your pet has been bit, you should seek medical attention as soon as possible.
