Tracking the War Party

 

(refer to pages 14, 15, & 51 in On the Trail of the Last of the Mohicans)

Corner Rock - Coleman Boundary, Pisgah National Forest (Toecane District), Buncombe County

 

Parking the car on Forest Service Road #74, it is but a short hike up a dirt path to this location. Once there, itís almost as if the "boys" have just left ... the creek gently gurgles as it tumbles over rocks in its bed. The large rock, Corner Rock, that gives this place its name, appears to balance precariously on edge from certain angles, but it wonít be moving anytime soon.

Under it, in its cave-like shelter, a hikerís campfire residue will invariably be there ... a reminder of the celluloid Hurons who once passed this way. Itís a perfect little place to camp, actually ... rock shelter, fresh water ... on a quiet, starlit night Iím quite sure you can feel the presence of the silent trackers, Uncas, Hawkeye, and Chingachgook, as they move through this place on another plane. Corner Rock captures all the essence of the scene it was chosen to be backdrop for.

~~~~~~~

This location, on National Forest Service land, is freely accessible & open to all. Primitive camping, out of sight of the road, is permissible. Donít forget, that all the Elk Hunt scenes were filmed in this vicinity, as well. One other note ... At the end of the Forest Service Road #74 is a parking area where a trail head can be found. Following it takes you to Douglas Falls. While not in the movie, itís certainly worth a look!
