Description

During the Revolutionary War, Andrew Hunter was captured Tory guerrilla leader David Fanning. To escape, Hunter stole Fanning's horse and rode down the precipitous Faith Rock to freedom.

This short trail crosses a bridge over the Deep River. It then loops around to the top of Faith Rock.
