From the trailhead, take the North Fork Moorman’s River Trail for 5.9 miles to the top of the ridge at Blackrock Gap and the intersection with Skyline Drive and the Appalachian Trail (AT). Turn right (north) on the AT for 1.1 miles to a 0.2 mile side trail to the left to the Blackrock summit. After returning from the summit, take a right (south) on the AT for 9.0 miles to the Turk Gap Parking Area. Leave the AT on the Turk Branch Trail and drop off the ridge for 2.4 miles. Take a left on the South Fork Moorman’s River Trail and follow for 2.0 miles back to your car. In 0.5 miles is an excellent swimming hole down to the left, known locally as Blue Hole.
