Begin the journey by driving through farmland where you can see the Mennonite community of Upper Barton Creek and experience their traditional lifestyle. Upon reaching Barton Creek, you will board your canoe and paddle into the remote Barton Creek Cave. Glide into a hidden cave entrance that’s surrounded by water and explore a deep series of passages that were sacred to the ancient Maya. Use your headlight to illuminate crystal formations and dangling stalactites and learn about the cave’s ceremonial history. Slip into the water for a cool swim before starting the 30 minute drive to Big Rock.
Big Rock Falls is a 150 foot waterfall flowing over the granite boulders of Privassion Creek. We hike down the escarpment hidden deep in the Mountain Pine Ridge where we come the stunning waterfall and the crystal pool into which the cascading water falls, spraying a cooling mist. You can scramble over boulders and see the water rushing past you as you plunge into the pool below. Enjoy the natural beauty of this hidden paradise with a picnic lunch and only the sound of splashing water, birds singing and wind in the trees to disturb the peaceful solitude.
